Support English

Thank You for Your Support


Gifts to the Department of English support student and faculty research and travel, as well as fellowships and student prizes that reward excellence in scholarship and creative writing. Your support allows us to bring the excitement of literature and creative writing into the classroom each day.

Every gift, large or small, furthers our educational mission and cements the Columbian College’s standing as one of the nation’s preeminent liberal arts colleges.

    The Connie Kibler Legacy Fund will be used to provide an annual prize to a student who contributes most to the life and vitality of the department, in honor of Connie's profound contributions to the spirit of our department. We may also use it to purchase a plaque in honor of Connie to be displayed in our department and for ongoing support of department events. If you would like to contribute to this fund, you can do so by donating through the "Support the Connie Kibler Legacy Fund" button below, or you can mail a check to the address under "Ways to Give" provided in this page.

    “The opportunity to study abroad was made possible because generous GW donors understand how their commitment to providing the gift of education is what makes students challenge ourselves to think more critically and globally. My scholarship motivated me to achieve my greatest ambitions so that I too can offer a helping hand to another Colonial.”
