Thank you for considering a gift to one of the following areas:

Make Mine Senior Design!

Support student innovation by giving to Senior Design. A capstone of every engineering student’s academic experience, the Fred & Harriet Cox Senior Design Competition encourages students to use everything they have learned in college to plan, design and build a real-world solution for an engineering challenge. Your donations will help students purchase supplies to build prototypes, and provide cash awards to help reimburse winners.



Hailey’s Hand - Click to view video

UNLV faculty and students created a 3D-printed hand for four-year-old Hailey Dawson. Now eight, she’s throwing out the first pitch at every Major League Baseball field to bring awareness to her condition, Poland Syndrome, and the cost-effective solutions available. Thanks to generous donors, we’ve been able to help two additional children. When the community needed us, we answered. Help us continue helping more kids like Hailey.



Advancing Student Opportunities Through Scholarships - Click for video

UNLV is one of the most diverse university campuses in the nation. Many of our engineering students are first-generation college students and have overcome extreme hardships and challenges to pursue their education. Examples of engineering scholarships include:

  • Dennis Waibel for Civil and Environmental Engineering and Construction
  • John S. Werth Scholarships for Computer Science
  • The Alambana Scholarship for international students 

Unrestricted scholarships are given to deserving students in all in engineering majors.


Your donation to our scholarship fund will enable Ph.D. students like Maria Ramos-Gonzales to continue her studies in mechanical engineering and impact the world!



Funding the Future – Advanced Engineering Studies Building

We’re busting at the seams - our current space can’t meet the needs of our growing student population and research efforts! We know our future economy will be STEM-based, and providing those learning opportunities to our students will not only afford them a future, but a future for Nevada as a robust, tech-based, diversified state. We must create the infrastructure to educate the engineers of tomorrow. Investment in UNLV’s College of Engineering is an investment in our students and faculty, and in Nevada’s future.



Special Programs

Is there a specific faculty project or event you would like to donate to? Baja, Solar Decathlon, environmental water research, etc... No problem, your contributions can be designated to departments or programs to support a variety of student and faculty projects. Select “other” and memo your intent, we will see it gets there.
