Giving Opportunities

Your generous gift to the Department of Architectural Engineering allows us to continue our tradition of excellence by supporting current and future architectural engineering pioneers. All gift transactions are made through Penn State's secure online giving portal and range from modest one-time cash donations to the creation of endowments that continue for many years. 

Currently, donors have the option to give to two different funds that are specific to the AE department, the Academic Excellence Endowment in Architectural Engineering and the Architectural Engineering Student Emergency Fund. Donations from the excellence endowment can be used for student and faculty travel, new teaching technology and equipment, student society memberships, and Fundamentals of Engineering Exam books, among others. Donations to the student emergency fund are used for tuition assistance.
