Through the generosity of philanthropic individuals, GSU Alumni, and numerous corporate and foundation partners GSU continues to build on a tradition of excellence. The GSU Foundation develops funding which:

  • Provides merit and financial need-based scholarships to GSU students.
  • Funds faculty development and research.
  • Provides additional resources for the community such as access to our library, Center for Performing Arts, Nathan Manilow Sculpture Park, and a full-service recreational facility.
