The Catalyst Fund was created by a group of faculty committed to advancing the goals of equity and inclusion at Drake University.
This is a restricted, non-endowed scholarship and emergency fund for students at Drake and is awarded to students who demonstrate financial need and are part of a historically and/or currently underrepresented group (such as domestic students of color, undocumented immigrants, refugees, and first generation college students). Annual scholarships will be awarded to students for their undergraduate career. Since its inception in 2016 this fund has provided needed scholarship and emergency funds for over a dozen students from underrepresented groups.
Your gift to the Catalyst Fund during All In supports students and furthers the goal of creating an environment where students from diverse backgrounds can succeed at Drake.
