While the University of Mary Washington is a public institution, private support in the form of endowments is vital to augment funding available from the Commonwealth of Virginia. Through the years, hundreds of supporters have established endowments and named them in honor – or in memory – of family, friends, professors, classmates, or businesses.
Some endowments are in the form of scholarships created to provide financial assistance for students while rewarding academic achievement. Other program and faculty endowments enhance academic offerings, museums and specialized centers, provide for research opportunities, or reward teaching and scholarly achievement.
