Supporting studentsfinancial assistance unlocks enormous potential by helping Eastern Washington University students graduate and enter the professional workforce. The ewu Foundation awarded 729 scholarships in 2021. With this support, students can focus on their studies, progress more quickly to their degrees and graduate debt-free or with greatly reduced debt.
Supporting facultythe ewu Foundation is committed to supporting faculty and staff proposals that will enhance the University and its mission to provide opportunities for student development, research and participation. The ewu Foundation awards funds through the eagle grants program. Those funds made learning and development programs possible in disciplines across campus, serving students at the highest level of excellence.
Supporting the universityewu is state-assisted rather than state-supported with approximately 30 percent of Eastern's operation budget being provided by state appropriations. Focused on developing the University of the future-one that anticipates student expectations as well as the needs of the 21st century professional workforce-the ewu Foundation rigorously fundraises to account for a decline in state support. By working to build permanent endowments and future generations of benefactors, the ewu Foundation is taking steps to ensure that students and programs will receive necessary financial support long into the future.
