Faculty Support: Funding Opportunities


Endowed Gifts for Faculty Support


Starting at $100,000, these powerful contributions are payable over a period of up to five years.

Endow a Professorship

Endowed professorships are one of the highest honors the College can bestow upon faculty who have made extraordinary contributions to research and teaching. Along with their prestige and financial rewards, named professorships attest to a scholar’s standing among peers, both at Barnard and in greater academia.

  • Endowed Professorships: $3 million
    Yields approximately $150,000 annually to help defray the costs of salary and benefits for a senior professor and to provide research support.
  • Endowed Visiting Professorships: $1.5 million
    Yields approximately $75,000 annually to defray costs of transportation, housing, and stipend for a visiting scholar to spend a term at Barnard.


Endow a Faculty Research Fund

Endowed faculty research support makes Barnard attractive to the world’s best scholars and helps with faculty retention. It also creates opportunities so that Barnard students can become a part of this groundbreaking work. Research advances our faculty's many disciplines, and provides our students with invaluable experience working with professionals at the highest levels of their fields of study.
