As you know, professors make a huge impact on a student’s time at Mizzou. They inspired you. They helped you think more deeply, engage with new ideas, and discover your full potential in and out of the classroom. They gave you so much to carry forward after you graduated: now you have a chance to give back to them. Your gift in support of faculty fellowships means MU can keep our high-performing faculty, and attract new ones. Universities worldwide compete for top-of-their-field scholars, and just like you did, current and future MU students deserve to learn from the best.
Your Economics Leaders Board has made faculty fellowships their top fundraising priority, because offering a strong compensation package is how we retain and attract outstanding faculty members in this competitive environment. With awards of up to $10,000, one or more faculty members each year will be designated as an ‘Economics Leaders Board Faculty Fellow.’ You can be a part of incentivizing excellence in research and teaching by helping to fund these fellowships.
