Everywhere you look on Oxford’s campus, you can see the impact of your generous gifts. The Oxford College Fund for Excellence is vital by providing support for the college’s most pressing needs as determined by the dean such as scholarships and campus experience.
Oxford College applications are also at historic highs, and the number of competitive applicants who need financial aid has risen. In order to make Oxford accessible to students—regardless of their family income level—we need your support of the Oxford College Scholarship Fund to increase the size and number of our scholarships. We will also expand our travel program, grow our already acclaimed leadership program, and increase opportunities for internships that prepare students for life beyond Oxford and Emory.
Help us continue Oxford’s emphasis on highly effective, personal approaches to education for generations to come by giving today. We could not achieve these goals without the support of alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends like you.
For Emory Day of Giving, we are also highlighting these giving opportunities:
The Brook International Travel Endowment supports Oxford College students who are first-time international travelers with airfare for study abroad and travel courses.
The Tarbutton Leadership Fellows supports Oxford students as they lead more than 80 clubs, organizations, varsity sports, and programs.
The Luke Gregory Memorial Compassion Endowment Fund was established by the Gregory Family in memory of Luke Gregory 76Ox 78C. The endowment supports stipends to students, faculty, or staff who experience hardships.
The Oxford College Organic Farm was created in 2011 to provide fresh produce for the Oxford community while offering Oxford's students hands-on experiences that cut across many disciplines. The farm began operation in 2014 and quickly earned a spot on the list of the Top 30 Sustainable College-Run Farms.
Many Oxford faculty members incorporate the farm into their curricula. This includes courses in anthropology, economics, sociology, biology, philosophy, environmental science, and wellness. Students visit the farm with their professors in their instruction and return to work for several additional hours.
