Invest in Next Now
Celebrating DAAP's Centennial
The "Next 100" DAAP Scholarship Drive: Invest in Next Now
This academic year marks the centennial anniversary of UC’s College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning (DAAP) when two schools, Applied Arts and Architecture, merged. While this anniversary gives us occasion to look back on the many DAAP alumni who have gone forth to distinguished careers, it is also an opportunity to look forward to the next 100 years.
With DAAP’s “Next 100” initiative, we invite you to support the future legacy of our College with the establishment of 100 new scholarships, or increased giving to existing funds, to support a hundred additional DAAP students– the “Next 100.” These 100 additional DAAP students will join you in our long line of exemplary alumni – on paths towards degrees and careers.
The Impact of Giving
"As a communication designer, my goal has always been to make life easier for the people I interact with. I have the platform to problem-solve and translate for people and businesses. Without scholarship support, I would not be able to achieve my goal of making the day-to-day experience for others easier."
"Your donation doesn't just allow me to attend classes and get a degree, your donation gives me opportunities to build my portfolio. By offering multiple sources of learning, DAAP prepares students for professional life better than any other design school. To help students who might not be able to afford college is an act of true generosity. "
"UC has encouraged outside-of-the-box thinking and allows for students to have a taste of the real world rather than being confined to the classroom setting. Experiential learning vastly improves our knowledge in our chosen fields, which we then apply in the classroom the following semester. UC has certainly helped me prepare for the future!"
On behalf of our faculty and students, I want to express our heartfelt appreciation for all of you who continue to invest in our journey. Your contribution to the “Next 100” is an investment not only in the future of a deserving student, but also in the Quality and Accessibility of our programs into the next century of DAAP’s development.
