Our Funds

Gifts to Sociology are used for undergraduate scholarships, graduate fellowships, and for engagement activities like seminars, lectures, and community outreach. A gift may support an existing scholarship or fund, or it may create a new fund for current needs or an endowment to support programs into the future. Gifts may be made in honor of a faculty member or friend.

For questions about giving to the Department or establishing a new fund, please contact a CLAS development officer.

30098 – Sociology Department Awards

31340 – Drs. Arnold and Sandra W. Dashefsky Student Award for Excellence Endowment

To provide one or more scholarship awards to undergraduate and/or graduate students majoring in Sociology or related fields.

The Dashefsky Award was an affirmation of the research I was able to conduct in Poland on anti-blackness and racism.  The much needed funds and the intent behind the award itself is a testament that previous scholars here at UConn are making to future generations of scholars coming through UConn examining these fraught and needed subjects.
