Giving Back

Online giving

Since its founding, philanthropy has been a cornerstone of Carnegie Mellon. Our tradition of giving can be traced back more than 100 years when industrialist and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie opened the Carnegie Technical Schools for the sons and daughters of the Pittsburgh region's workers. This tradition continues today through the generosity of alumni, parents and friends around the world.

Your investment in Carnegie Mellon advances the university's work: bringing together the most talented students with world-renowned faculty and staff to create innovative solutions to today's most pressing problems.

Hear stories from a few of our scholars and show your support. 


Ways to Designate Your Gift within the INI 

INI Funds and Awards:

Joyce Brocaglia - Executive Women's Forum Endowed Fellowship in the Information Networking Institute

Established in honor of the CEO of Alta Associates and founder of the Executive Women's Forum, the Joyce Brocaglia - Executive Women's Forum Endowed Fellowship in the Information Networking Institute seeks to provide support to INI graduate students who qualify for financial aid. The fund was created as an endowed fellowship. If the total gifts do not achieve the $50,000 minimum needed to endow the fund, then the funds would be expendable.

EWF-INI Fellow Fund

The EWF-INI Fellow Fund provides support specifically for the recipients of the EWF INI Fellowship for books, cost of living and other expenses associated with graduate school. The fund was established by a 2010 alumna who was inspired to continue building the community of support she experienced at Carnegie Mellon.

Innocent Habiyaremye Memorial Award

This award will honor one student who embodies a sense of community spirit in his or her everyday actions. The award was first established in memory of an MS20 INI alumnus who inspired others through his kindness and volunteer activities.

ACS Legacy Scholarships

If you’re interested in developing a meaningful relationship with an INI student, consider funding a Legacy Scholarship. Since these funds are not endowed, your entire gift (four annual payments of $2,500 each) will immediately benefit the student recipient.

Please consider making your gift today.
