Our Priorities

The Perrotis College Annual Fund supports everything Perrotis College is and does. It opens the doors to bright, motivated students through scholarships. It provides applied research and laboratory equipment, internship stipends, and supports faculty salaries.  

Together, the gifts of alumni, friends and corporate donors to the Annual Fund provide a significant source of revenue to assist the ongoing operations of the College. Because Annual Fund gifts are not restricted in their use, they go to areas within the College where they are most needed. 

You may also wish to designate your gift toward one of our current priorities:

Perrotis College Scholarship Fund
Gifts of any size support our scholarship program for motivated, deserving undergraduates. Scholarship support allows students the freedom to explore unique career paths or pursue new and community-service minded interests. Student aid is not only a critical tool used to attract the best and the brightest to Perrotis College, but helps create a rich academic experience through which students are encouraged to explore the greater community and apply their studies to the real world.
Named Annual Scholarships may be established in your name, the name of your company, or in honor of someone special to you by pledging annual gifts of $9,000 or more for a three-year period to cover half of a student’s educational cost.  All donors of named scholarships receive an annual report on the recipient’s progress.
Endowed scholarships carry the donor-named fund in perpetuity and offer options for shaping the criteria of the scholarship.  Only the income -- never the principal -- is spent for the purposes specified by the donor. An endowed Perrotis College scholarship may be established in your lifetime or through an estate gift with a minimum gift of $250,000.

Graduate Student Aid
Graduate students will be an integral part of the Perrotis College community. These students will come from throughout the region and the world, and contribute fresh perspectives. They will help mentor Perrotis College’s undergraduate population and, through their research, make a lasting impact locally and beyond.

Academic Programs

You may choose to designate your gift in support of one of our undergraduate majors or initiatives, or in support of the Perrotis College Graduate School:


Perrotis College faculty are devoted to their students’ success. Applying the College’s Learn by Doing philosophy, teaching and research staff inspire student engagement while bringing the latest knowledge, technology and applied research findings to their classrooms, laboratories and beyond.

Your gift in support of Faculty may establish an endowed position, support research, assist a faculty member to attend a professional conference, and more.


Construction of the new state-of-the-art Aliki Perrotis Educational Center is now underway through the generous gift of Mrs. Aliki Perroti. Gifts are being sought to furnish and equip this center that will be the landmark academic complex for Perrotis College. 

The renovation of an existing college building to become the Seth Frank Hall of Graduate Studies has recently been completed.  Support is being sought to furnish and equip this research center that will serve both graduate and undergraduate students and faculty.

We welcome gifts to support these and other capital projects, maintain our existing physical plant and care for our living assets.

Current facility funding priorities include:

  • Aliki Perrotis Educational Center at Perrotis College 
  • Seth Frank Hall of Graduate Studies 
  • Library renovation: Serving all academic divisions, the Library was last remodeled 15 years ago when libraries served student needs in a far different way than technology and collaborative, project-based learning now demands.  Located in historic Princeton Hall, the planned 2017 renovation includes creating flexible spaces to encourage collaborative learning and research, and accommodate new information technologies and their use.

By making a gift to the endowment, you help safeguard Perrotis College’s finances through changing economic times. Interest earned on endowment funds is used in perpetuity to support the College’s mission.

Existing endowment funds include those for operations, scholarships, faculty support, research, and facilities maintenance.
