Funding Scholarships

Donating Directly

The Department of Sociology, Anthropology, and Criminology maintains a gift account, which is used to fund the annual department Honors Reception, student activities, the annual faculty retreat, and other initiatives including ongoing renovations to our new student study lounge. To give to this fund, go to and select "Sociology, Anthropology, and Criminology" from the drop-down menu.

Buying a Brick

EIU alumni have the unique opportunity to leave a lasting, tangible legacy by investing in an engraved brick or paving stone for the EIU Commemorative Courtyard. By investing in an engraved brick or paving stone, you are acknowledging and honoring your time and accomplishments on campus or helping to memorialize friends or family members who would be proud to know they've been recognized with a lasting tribute to their time on campus. Personalized bricks and paving stones will be permanently and proudly displayed in EIU’s Commemorative Courtyard near the Library Quad, leaving an enduring impression that current and future generations of our growing EIU family can celebrate for years to come. And the best part is that 80% of all brick and paving stone investments can be designated to support a scholarship, college, department, or program of your choice. Check out to check out all of the available options.
