Learn more about your impact

ASU and the Graduate College are working to make graduate education accessible for all those qualified to pursue it. To promote inclusive excellence in graduate education at ASU, the Graduate College’s Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Fund provides financial support to graduate students from underrepresented populations and fuels initiatives to enhance JEDI practices in graduate programs across academic disciplines. Your support changes students’ lives and enhances the communities in which they will live and work.

Thank you for believing in me and supporting me on this journey. Receiving this funding validated and strengthened my commitment as an educator and researcher. My commitment to my students and my research is grounded in my experiences as a Spanish heritage language speaker, an immigrant, a first-generation student and a daughter of farmworkers. My goal is to support Latinx and other underrepresented minority students to obtain a college degree and lead them to become agents of their education. Supporting students in their academic journey is one way to challenge the social injustices underrepresented minority students continue to face."

Impact of Donor Support

  • More learners can pursue higher education. In 2022, 22,000 donors contributed $66.3 million for scholarships.
  • More students succeed. ASU ranks #1 among the state’s public universities for its 86% first-year retention rate thanks in part to donor-funded student success initiatives.
  • And donors helped ASU offer more than 4,500 hours of free tutoring.

I believe ASU is a major life force in our community and I want to do my part to help it thrive."
