Giving to Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences

An investment in the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences is an investment not only in the future of the department, but in the students we will send out into the world as professionals and educators. Alumni and friends of NRES are important partners in the future of not only our department, but in the stewardship of the world's natural resources.

Ways to support NRES

  • Help meet the department's needs by giving to the Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences Fund. Gifts help support endowed chairs; capstone instruction design; student recruitment and retention; graduate fellowships; undergraduate scholarships; support for continuous updating of teaching and research facilities and equipment; student field instruction and international experience; and alumni awards.
  • The NRES Fund for Excellence, was created to support NRES programs.
  • Support outstanding scholars who might not otherwise have the advantage of a University of Illinois education through the NRES JBT Scholarship Fund.
  • The O’Hara-Brawn Study Abroad Scholarship Fund supports travel opportunities for NRES undergraduate students participating in study abroad programs led by faculty in the College of ACES.

The funds from this memorial scholarship will certainly lessen the financial burdens of tuition as well as inspire me to continue achieving high grades, set new goals, and make the most of my time as a student at the University of Illinois.Molly Roche, NRES undergraduate
