UNC Asheville students dream BIG. They come to this campus ready to invent, to innovate, and to change the world. As UNC Asheville faculty and staff, we play a critical role supporting them in their journey both inside and outside the classroom.
Every year, faculty and staff members demonstrate their commitment to students with a gift to scholarships. Thanks to the generosity of the campus community, more than 70 percent of our students receive some form of financial aid. Help keep that success going by making a gift to scholarships during the Faculty Staff Campaign.
Scholarships are essential. They empower us to recruit and retain the most talented, dedicated students—students who are ready to make a difference in the world.
One of the easiest ways to support scholarships is through payroll deduction. By donating a set amount each month, you are playing a large role in the success of our students. Every gift adds up, creating new opportunities and making a profound impact on our campus. Download the Payroll Deduction Form.
