Student Support

Scholarship and programmatic support open doors of opportunity for hundreds of CHHS students each year, helping them pursue their dreams with fewer financial burdens and a community of support.

Research and Faculty Support

Research and faculty support strengthens our ability to recruit and retain faculty researchers who perform research that applies to nearly all facets of healthy living, including education, nutrition, the built environment, apparel design, exercise, disease prevention, and relationships with the common goal of improving physical, mental, and social wellbeing of individuals, families, and communities.

Endowed College Professorships

Professorships are typically held by gifted faculty members whose accomplishments indicate great potential. Their efforts are focused on honoring their teaching skills and on carving out areas of research. Earnings from college professorship endowments supplement faculty salary lines. Minimum college professorship endowments begin at $375,000.

Endowed University Professorships

This designation is intended to enhance faculty positions held by scholars/teachers with outstanding qualifications. The achievements and qualifications of Distinguished Professors are expected to be very high, stetting them apart from the majority of their colleagues. Earnings from college professorship endowments supplement faculty salary lines. Minimum university professorship endowments begin at $750,000.

College Endowed Chair

Recipients of College Chairs must have demonstrated significant contributions to their fields through exceptional teaching and scholarly excellence. These individuals are expected to be of national stature with established track records of achievement. Minimum college endowed chairs begin at $1.5 million.

University Endowed Chair

This designation is accorded to that select number of faculty judged to be truly outstanding scholars and teachers according to rigorous, nationally accepted standards. The reputations of recipients reflect their special creative and research contributions, as well as their efforts in shaping the world’s understanding of their fields of study. Annual allocations from the endowment are expected to fund the salary, benefits, and operational costs for the position. Minimum university endowed chairs begin at $3 million.
