BAE Enrichment Fund

Bio&Ag Enrichment Fund provides flexible funds to support a number of activities which cannot be funded with state or grant funds. These include funds for graduation exercises, special awards to outstanding staff, support of student professional activities, graduate student recruitment efforts, advisory board activities, moving expenses for new faculty members, and special building renovations/beautification programs.

BAE Student Activities Endowment Fund

The Student Activities Endowment was established by the NC Section of ASAE to help students participate in professional activities. One use of the fund is to provide travel funds for students to attend regional and national professional society meetings.

Scholarships & Endowments

Scholarship & Endowments directly support undergraduate or graduate students in the department. Only the earnings of the endowments are used each year, so that contributions to these funds provide continuing support. The Bio & Ag Scholarship Committee, reports that with the increasing number and quality of students in the department, there are a number of deserving students still not being supported.
