Presidential Scholars Matching Challenge


Want to help me spend my money?   

Here’s how:

First the back story—and the good news:  I am thrilled and touched to have just been awarded the 2012 President’s Award for Excellence in Faculty Service.

The $$$ angle:  Unlike other faculty awards, this one actually comes with a financial award, $1,000.

My reaction:  I am being given this grant because I am privileged to work with such great students who have always given me back as much as I give as honors coordinator. 

 So—what would be more fitting than

my donating this money to where it belongs:

 The Presidential Scholars Alumni Scholarship Fund. 

Here’s where you come in:  I am setting up my $1,000 donation as A MATCHING FUND. I will match your contribution at a ratio of 1:1. For example, if you give $20, and with the match, the impact of your gift is now $40. This match is in effect from MAY 21 - JUNE 21, 2012.

Donate Now:


BuchmanEvery contribution, large and small, makes an enormous difference! Let’s work together to give more Presidential Scholars more opportunities to study abroad.

Thanks in advance for contributing; I am eager to match your gifts to support Presidential Scholars.
