Give to SAU

Thank you for making a difference today.

Today you join alumni, parents and friends who together will make a difference. Your generosity sustains a thriving student body and exemplifies the culture of giving that is so intrinsic to our Ambrosian community. 

Current solicitations from campus partners are listed below.


Dolores Hilden Nursing Scholarship

Upon her retirement, Dolores Hilden Scholarship was established to honor her contribution to nursing education. This fund will continue Dr. Hilden's legacy and make a lasting impact on the lives of future students and the profession.

Think about your time in the program and where it has taken you today. We hope you will consider giving back to the SAU Nursing Program and make a gift to the Dolores Hilden Scholarship

Freeman Pollard Minority Scholarship

Personal achievement is often measured through a series of "firsts" - first home, first job, first child, first promotion. The same holds for universities - first graduating class, first female student, first graduate program...first African American professor.  The Freeman Pollard Minority Scholarship helps provide many firsts for students who otherwise might not be able to attend college. 

Celebrate the legacy of Dr. Freeman Pollard with a gift today!

The Physical Therapy Department Founding Faculty Endowed Scholarship is established in recognition of several recently retired founding faculty members of the Physical Therapy Department at St. Ambrose University. The Scholarship will benefit St. Ambrose University Physical Therapy graduate students, and will serve as the first Scholarship dedicated to the DPT program. A committee comprised of the Director of the Physical Therapy Program and select faculty are responsible for recommending potential recipients. Support the PT Scholarship with a gift today!

Art and Rachel Serianz Endowed Scholarship

The Serianz Scholarship has been established in honor of their combined 73 years of service to St. Ambrose and to support students from their respective areas.. The Chemistry scholarship will be awarded to a rising sophomore who has shown a passion and dedication in the classroom. A rising junior majoring in elementary education will be eligible for the Education scholarship, preferably one with an endorsement in science or STEM. The scholarship will be funded through an initial gift from Art and Rachel, with additional funds from former students and colleagues in their honor. Make your gift today.

Studio Theatre Department

Your gift to the SAU Theatre Department will provide vital support to advance the outstanding student talent and career development we provide in the classroom, on our stages, and beyond. The annual trip to the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival and funding the student-run Studio Theatre season are just two ways your donation helps support our students. Support our Theatre students today!

Symphonic Band trip to Ireland

This May, the Symphonic Band will be crossing the pond for a performance tour of Ireland. As part of the tour, we are one of the first American college bands invited to play at the Royal Irish Academy of Music. This tour is an exciting musical opportunity for our students and will create lasting memories and deepen the lifelong friendships that are foundational to the St. Ambrose experience. Help us to continue these traditions and make sure the tour is full of memories by making a gift to the St. Ambrose bands.
