Academic Endowment

The Academic Endowment Fund at The Citadel Foundation plays a critical role in underwriting academic programs at the college. Each year, a distribution of the Academic Endowment Fund is made to the college for academic enrichment opportunities for faculty and students.

Typically, The Citadel Foundation’s annual academic endowment grant to The Citadel totals several million dollars. This grant supplements the new resources contributed by donors to The Citadel each year.

Gifts to the Academic Endowment Fund allow The Citadel to continue to advance as a world-class learning institution offering exceptional academic and leadership development opportunities:

Academic scholarships
Student learning opportunities
Faculty scholarship
The academic environment
Faculty recruitment and retention
Special opportunities for academic enrichment
