Alumni and Annual Fund Giving

The Department of Computer Science depends on the generosity of its alumni to support the overall strength of our mission and the value of your degree. To allow us to continue to provide the education of a quality that our students and our alumni expect, we ask that all of our alumni consider an annual donation to the Computer Science Excellence Fund. We deeply appreciate your continued support.

Honor a Professor

Endowments are essential in providing long-standing support of key initiatives that ensure our department stays competitive and continues to offer the best resources available to our students. Often such endowments are established in the name of one of our professors and will benefit causes near and dear to their hearts. There is no better way of honoring these faculty members and their legacy at UT Computer Science than by supporting an endowment in their name.

Undergraduate Student Support and Scholarships

Support students as they grow into the future. Adequate student funding that minimizes the financial obstacles students face ensures solid recruitment, retention and support of tomorrow’s leaders. Be a part of producing a computing workforce trained to solve ever-changing problems - imaginers, innovators, risk-takers, problem solvers, and designers with skills not easily off-shored.

Give to student scholarships.

Alumni Staircase Etching

One of the defining architectural elements of GDC is the grand staircase that rises six stories from the open atrium in the heart of the complex. This atrium connects the building’s social hub to the many student spaces, labs, and classrooms.

As a UTCS alumni and with a $200 or greater gift to UTCS, you can have your name or the name of a loved one etched into the stair rail, permanently commemorating your time at the University of Texas at Austin.

Give to UTCS and have your name etched on the GDC stair railing.

Scholarship Matching Program

There are few gifts you can make that are more transformative to students’ lives than scholarships. If you make a pledge between now and December 31, 2018, you can take advantage of a special opportunity to set up a scholarship in your name or the name of a loved one and have that gift matched by the Kodosky Foundation, doubling the impact of your philanthropy. These gifts will be used to recruit the best and brightest undergraduate students to the Department of Computer Science, ensuring that these talented students have every reason to call the University of Texas at Austin home.  If you would like to learn more about how you can be involved in this important initiative, contact Brent Winkelman at or 512-471-9793 for more information.
