W. P. Carey Student Laptop Program

Learn more about your impact

Due to financial need, many students are unable to purchase computing tools necessary to support their coursework. With many textbooks and course learning systems delivered online, this creates a significant disadvantage for students. During COVID-19, W. P. Carey learned that a significant percentage of our student population was doing their work on a mobile device as they did not have a personal computer to read their textbooks or complete their assignments. In Fall 2023, W. P. Carey School of Business began a pilot program to provide a laptop to first-year students who expressed that they did not have appropriate computing resources. W. P. Carey is confident that with the additional funding provided by this new fund, they will be able to purchase additional computers and advertise the opportunity more broadly. 

Impact of Donor Support

Because of you:

  • 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."
