Below are the Department’s leading funding priorities. If you would rather give to our general fund, which allows you indicate your preference for use, please select LA General Discretionary.

LA General Discretionary

Funds available for use at the Department’s discretion; most often scholarships to recruit and retain top applicants and students.

RAs in Practice

The Research Assistants in Practice program (RAs in Practice) connects talented graduate students with local, state, and federal agencies, non-profit organizations, and design firms. Students apply skills in research, writing, and design and draw upon UMN libraries, databases, and faculty advisors to help their sponsoring organizations protect and enhance the public realm and natural and cultural resources.

Study Abroad

Trip locations vary, but students focus on climate change adaptation and water as a design driver. Your contribution will help offset the cost students who may not otherwise be able to attend.

If you are interested in creating your own fund or sponsoring a student, please contact the department for more information or make your gift today!
