Give to CMU

ACS Legacy Scholarship Trustee Challenge

Carnegie Mellon people never shy away from a challenge. In fact, tackling tough challenges is what we do best.

Now, with your help and generous financial incentives from CMU trustees, the university will be able to accelerate support for undergraduate students who need financial assistance. Your gift can create an ACS Legacy Scholarship today.

Through this limited opportunity, CMU Trustees will provide $3,000 toward the usual $10,000 cost of establishing an ACS Legacy Scholarship.

Here’s how it works:

 Year  Donor gift  
 Trustee match
 1  $1,000   $1,500
 2  $1,500   $1,000
 3  $2,000
  $500
 4  $2,500   $0
 TOTAL   
 $7,000   $3,000


The entire gift will immediately benefit the undergraduate student recipient.

Create Personal Impact

For many donors who give through an ACS Legacy Scholarship, the best part is the personal and rewarding relationship with the student. Donors and undergrads often get to know each other through emails, letters, visits to campus and special events.

Donors can choose to support students in a particular school or college, as well as name their scholarship in honor of a loved one.

Deadline and Eligibility

This matching opportunity is available until June 30, 2013 or until matching funds are exhausted—whichever comes first. It is limited to individuals who have not yet made a $2,500+ gift to CMU during one fiscal year (July 1-June 30).
