Giving to UTSA's College of Education and Human Development (COEHD) plays a vital role in providing opportunities to students, faculty, projects, and research that will support the mission and vision of the college.

Dean’s Annual Fund

-coehdscholarships.pngAnnual funds may be used to enhance any of the School’s programs, including: student support, teacher education, faculty support, and outreach.  With state funds declining and tuition costs rising, private gifts are taking on an ever increasing importance. By making a gift to the College of Education and Human Development Annual Fund, you’ll make a real difference by providing flexible, unrestricted resources that can be used immediately to invest in the school’s highest priority areas. Contributions — no matter the size — will go toward enriching lives, transforming communities, and bettering the world. When you give, you’ll help the College of Education and Human Development continue to consistently achieve at the highest levels across the educational landscape.

Scholarships & Fellowships

Scholarships and graduate fellowships open doors to the best student scholars. For some students from low-income families, scholarships and fellowships are essential to college success. For others in high demand, the extra financial support is what brings them to UTSA rather than going to a different school. For all, scholarships and fellowships are bridges for these scholars to go greater.

Scholarships and fellowships enable students to become civic leaders, pursue careers that transform communities and strengthen the workforce. Philanthropists who so generously fund scholarships and fellowships inspire greatness in students and elevate UTSA’s influence and impact across the globe.

Professorships & Chairs

The University of Texas at San Antonio has a goal to establish a number of new faculty endowments during the Be Bold campaign. Such endowments are crucial to the life of UTSA. The men and women teaching and conducting research are the heart of higher education; they have devoted their careers to enhancing knowledge, shepherding discoveries and serving communities — all for the betterment of humankind.

Likewise, the people who support those endeavors — philanthropists whose gifts enrich the learning experience and make exploration into the unknown possible — share that nobility. By endowing faculty positions, donors create streams of funding to enable faculty to discover and invent what we can only now imagine, while helping prepare future generations for the challenges of their own lives and times.

COEHD Centers & Institutes

The College of Education and Human Development has a number of signature programs, research & service centers and institutes that distinguish it from others. Philanthropists who support these programs feed ingenuity and exploration; bring ideas to life and imagination to fruition. Their partnership enables COEHD to teach, advocate, discover, invent and deliver life-transforming experiences for our students, our community, Texas and the world.
