The SCUP Fund

The SCUP Fund supports research and initiatives that drive innovative ideas and enterprising solutions for higher education viability and vitality.

Launch A Planning Leader!

THANK YOU! Your gifts to The SCUP Fund have helped us launched 10 SCUP Fellows! You make the SCUP Fellows Program possible.

This is SCUP's initiative to recognize and develop leaders who will build the body of higher education planning knowledge.

During the course of their fellowship year, SCUP Fellows research a planning initiative of their choice, and they share the outcomes and lessons from their research with SCUP’s constituency at the conclusion of their fellowship.

Mahauganee Shaw Bonds educator and researcher, presented the results of her research at the SCUP 2018 Annual Conference in Nashville. Her compelling research project was titled: Institutional Decisions of How to Carry On After a Campus Tragedy: An Examination of Campus-Based Memorials Structures and Commemorative Spaces.
