Your generosity positively influences our students, research initiatives and causes
When you give to the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Arizona State University, you’re helping our students find endless opportunities to pursue their dreams and become successful. You’re also supporting a top-ranked research university that’s number one in the U.S. for innovation. Our students and research initiatives come together to find solutions to some of society’s most pressing issues, and in doing so make the world a better place.

The Zebulon Pearce Distinguished Teaching Award was established in memory of Zebulon Pearce, who graduated from Territorial Normal School at Tempe (now Arizona State University) with teacher’s credentials in 1899. These awards honor teaching excellence within the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. For spring 2016, we have named three winners based on their dedication to students and substantial contributions to the humanities, natural sciences and social sciences.
Annie Carson, a global health major in the School of Human Evolution and Social Change at Arizona State University, was able to visit six foreign countries to conduct research for her honors thesis thanks to a merit-based scholarship from the Circumnavigators Club Foundation, which supports programs that further its mission of improving international relations through friendship and understanding.
Thanks to the generosity of two major donors, Boeing and Salt River project, high school teachers can receive partial tuition scholarships and programmatic support to advance their education in physics and improve their teaching capabilities. The ASU modeling instruction program addresses physics-teacher shortage and strengthens STEM pathway, directly benefiting 100,000 students annually in school districts across Arizona.
After graduating from the microbiology program in Arizona State University’s School of Life Sciences in 1970, alumnus Michael Peddecord decided to start contributing to the program’s scholarship fund to help alleviate students’ financial struggles. Blessed with a stable, well-paying job, Peddecord believes it’s only fair to give something back. And, there’s a long list of scholars who have been impacted by his generosity.
Being on ASU’s International Genetically Engineered Machine team convinced alumnus Ryan Muller that he wanted to pursue synthetic biology as a graduate student, and that he was good at it. Muller continues to appreciate the way the School of Life Sciences and the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry supported his research efforts by giving him all the necessary recourses to develop his own projects and succeed.
If you want to make sure your gift matters, consider investing in our scholarship funds. Our students not only benefit from financial assistance, but also the knowledge that someone from their community believes in them enough to help fund their education. Without your help, our students wouldn’t have this opportunity.
