Welcome Honors alumni and friends! We’re always eager to reconnect with students and supporters of the Honors College.

Many things have probably changed since your time on campus—even if you’re a recent grad!—but The University of Alabama Honors College remains committed to providing the best possible environment for our students to learn, grow, and contribute to the world around them.  We could use a little help. If you would like to contribute back to Honors, we ask you to either engage with our current students or donate to help all future students.

There are many ways to support the Honors College.

You can make a gift online at any time through the University’s online giving page. You can also support the College by giving annually or through establishing an endowment or estate gift.

The impact your giving has on the lives of our students and faculty is tremendous and greatly appreciated. Thank you for supporting the Honors College and for being part of our transformative work!

Annual Gifts

Annual gifts to the Honors College Collegiate Fund support the education of our students. Gifts to the fund help ensure that the Honors College traditions of excellence and opportunity continue for years to come. The Collegiate Fund provides scholarships to students, travel and teaching grants for faculty, and funding to departments for special equipment, technology, guest lecturers, and more.

For more information about annual giving, contact Nancy Norwood at nsnorwood1@ua.edu or 205-348-5557. You may also make a gift to the Honors College Collegiate Fund now or use our QR Code below.

Endowed Gifts

An endowment in the Honors College is a gift that is intended to permanently support a college program. The endowment fund remains intact in perpetuity, while its earnings support students, faculty and programs designated by the donor.

Endowments allow the Honors College to create and maintain excellence in academics beyond what can be accomplished with funding from the state. Endowments provide the funds for scholarships, fellowships, professorships, academic chairs and programs that serve as crucial elements in student and faculty recruitment and retention.

A minimum of $25,000 is required to establish an endowment. However, an endowed gift may be pledged over a period of five years. Endowments can be established with cash gifts, securities or liquidated property. They may also be funded through a bequest or other deferred gift or through a combination of lifetime and deferred gifts.
