Contributions are welcome at any time and will receive a charitable tax receipt from the University of Calgary. As of 1 August 2018, the endowment had passed $89,000. Our goal over the next several years is to build the endowment to $200,000. Thank you for your contribution!

Sociology Professors' Doctoral Entrance Scholarship

In 2008 the Department of Sociology began fundraising for a new Ph.D. entrance scholarship. In 2013 the scholarship fund was endowed. As of 1 November 2016 we had raised approximately $46,000. By 1 August 2018 the endowment had grown to $89,000.

This scholarship is named in order to recognize and honour the work of all former and current faculty members in the Department of Sociology at the University of Calgary as well as our many BA, MA and PhD graduates who have gone on to successful academic careers as sociologists at other institutions.

The value of the scholarship is a minimum of $1,000 although the most recent award was for $1,800. It is awarded to a student entering full-time doctoral studies in the Department of Sociology, University of Calgary. The objective of the scholarship is to give the department an additional tool to help it recruit high quality Ph.D. entrants on a yearly basis.

Our goal over the next several years is to grow the endowment to $200,000. Please consider making a one-time gift or perhaps a monthly pledge to this scholarship fund. To make a donation through a secure web site, please click here. Please note that the University of Calgary has the ability to match donations to endowments through the Government of Alberta's Access to the Future Fund. Though this shouldn't be the primary reason you make a gift, as the U. of C. currently has a long list of donations waiting to be matched, we wanted you to know that this is a way the Government of Alberta and the University of Calgary are increasing the value of the gift you are so generously considering.

All donors are acknowledged on the department's web site (unless you prefer to remain anonymous). Those who make a cumulative lifetime donation of $25,000 or more will be designated as "lead donors" on the web site. To make a donation through a secure web site, please click here.

All donations qualify for a charitable tax receipt. Thanks!
