Gift Categories

Greatest Need Fund (Unrestricted Gifts)

These funds are undesignated support to be administered by the university administration at its own discretion. A gift of unrestricted funds provides NU with the most crucial and flexible of funds, which will be put immediately to use to meet every-day academic and developmental needs of the institution.   The University may use these unrestricted funds to initiate new programs, fund student projects and other such activities, support purchases of equipment, laboratory facilities or furnishings, or to meet any other urgent financial operational need the University might face at any point in time - all in support of the University's mission.

Specific Gifts:

Cash donations to be designated for use in the development of a specific area such as:

Support for Research
Nile University’s centers of research are headed by highly innovative scientists, selected for the breadth of their knowledge and the intensity of their focus.
As a leading research university, Nile University must ensure that its students and faculty members can conduct research that leads to new discoveries and breakthroughs. Funding support guarantees that financial resources will be available for cutting-edge research and further discoveries.

NU's established research centers:
  1.  Wireless Intelligent Networks Center (WINC).
  2. The Center for Informatics Science (CIS).
  3. Nanoelectronics Integrated Systems Center (NISC).
  4. Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Competitiveness Center (IECC).
  5. Center for Nanotechnology (CNT).
  6. Center for Intelligent Transportation Systems (CITS).

Support for Students 
A full or partial scholarship is one of the greatest gifts a student, and therefore the University, can receive. Scholarships play an important role in NU's ability to attract and enroll the most talented students by supporting both academically gifted students of merit and those students in need of financial aid.

Support for Faculty 
The quality of education in a university is directly related to the quality of its faculty, making top educators and researchers the lifeline of the University. 
Support for faculty greatly enhances NU's ability to attract distinguished academicians, emerging faculty members and successful faculty leaders by providing funds for faculty salaries, financial aid, awards for outstanding performance, or means of career advancement through research or studies.
