At the University of Iowa, we strive to create an educational experience that is both exceptional and accessible—one that’s about more than just obtaining a college degree. We challenge our students to discover their passions both in and out of the classroom, to serve their communities and improve our world, and to fully immerse themselves in crafting a personalized and in-depth Iowa experience.

Private support is instrumental in helping students continue to learn, discover, and engage in all Iowa has to offer. Scholarships, innovative program offerings, and enhanced research opportunities for students—and for the faculty members who guide them along their educational paths—are among the areas in need of support to continue delivering on our promise of nurturing student success.

Our vision for bridging students to the future that awaits them builds on 165 years of excellence and innovation—traditions that thrive still today at the University of Iowa. Transformational philanthropy from generous friends and alumni will help make it possible for countless students to bring their dreams to life on campus and beyond.
