GT FY21: Support the iSchool Excellence Fund

Every gift, no matter the size, makes a difference.



At the University of Maryland College of Information Studies (iSchool), top-notch faculty and graduate students are exploring how information profoundly touches our lives: in government, education, health care, employment and more. We have educated thousands of information professionals over the last 50+ years. Building upon its foundation in library science and information studies, the iSchool has grown into an education and research powerhouse in human-computer interaction, digital libraries, cloud computing, information access, e-government and social media.



Making a gift to the iSchool Excellence Fund is a perfect way to ensure we have ample resources to support student success. Gifts to this fund help the Dean respond quickly to the growing needs of our students and faculty, as well as offer opportunities to enhance the educational experience with expert lectures, conference visits and College outreach activities. Your investment will fund student scholarships, hands-on learning experiences and groundbreaking research that shapes information science, management and policy in government agencies, nonprofits and businesses.



To seize opportunities or meet unforeseen challenges as they arise, the iSchool relies on gifts to the Excellence Fund. This fund supports the greatest needs of the university, including:

  • Student scholarships

  • Research opportunities

  • Study abroad programs

  • Internships and field experience

  • Professional development for students, faculty and staff

  • Academic programs

  • Emergency support for students


Gifts in support of the University of Maryland are accepted and managed by the University of Maryland College Park Foundation, Inc., an affiliated 501(c)(3) organization authorized by the Board of Regents. Contributions to the University of Maryland are tax-deductible as allowed by law. Please see your tax advisor for details.
