Gifts to the Columbia College Parents Fund support four main priorities: the Core Curriculum, financial aid, internships and student life. These priorities are fundamental to the first-rate undergraduate experience that defines Columbia College.
Core Curriculum: Keeps class sizes small and provides funding for off-campus trips to the opera and museums.
Financial Aid: Helps the College maintain its commitment to need-blind admissions and full-need financial aid.
Internships: Provides stipends to students pursuing unpaid and low-paid internships, research and volunteer opportunities.
Student Life: Supports study breaks, orientation programs and residence hall activities.
