Supporting the Program

The Caldwell Fellows is NC State’s most long-lived scholarship and comprehensive leadership-development program for undergraduates. Throughout program history, the ability to fund students’ education and professional development has been enabled largely by generous contributions from alumni, family and friends. The original endowments for these merit awards, in the spirit of a land grant university, derive from the grassroots efforts of visionary alumni and friends who planted the program’s financial seeds. In the intervening decades, continuing and new gifts to The Caldwell Fellows program, managed by the NC State Alumni Association, have expanded its breadth and impact.

There are countless ways to support The Caldwell Fellows program and its students. No gift is too small, and donations of goods and services are equally appreciated.

Invest in the next generation today.
