The #1 College of Education in North Carolina
Support the College
Help us prepare extraordinary educators who will make a difference across North Carolina.
Supporting scholarships at the College of Education is one of the best ways to ensure a pipeline of high-quality educators and leaders for North Carolina’s schools and communities. Without sufficient funding, our prospective students face paying back student loans on a modest salary or may choose to enroll in another college or pursue another field. By increasing endowed scholarship opportunities, we can ensure dedicated future educators have the chance to develop their skills at NC State – and impact classrooms, schools and communities across the state – for generations to come.
Our Excellence Fund
Your support to the College of Education's Excellence Fund allows us to respond to urgent educational needs. Gifts to the fund, for example, help us recruit and prepare more educators of color; build a pipeline of K‐12, community college and higher education leaders who build diverse, inclusive and supportive learning environments; and provide resources to meet our most vulnerable communities where they are.Read More About the Excellence Fund

An Investment In Our State
Each year, donors make a difference for thousands of children and families both in North Carolina and across the country by supporting the College of Education Excellence Fund. Gifts to this fund go to work immediately and allow Dean Mary Ann Danowitz the flexibility to direct resources to priorities that align with the state’s most pressing educational needs.
Gifts to the Excellence Fund support scholarships, bring faculty research into practice and strengthen the learning experiences that create strong educators, like cultural immersion trips and cutting-edge technology. Through the Excellence Fund, we’ve created the Student-Teacher Mini-Grants Program, which helps student teachers develop and implement innovative, hands-on classroom projects without incurring out-of-pocket expenses.
