School of Integrative Biology Unrestricted Fund

The Integrative Biology Annual Fund is the main source of unrestricted funds available to IB. It is used to cover educational expenses for undergraduates that cannot be handled by the School's normal university budget. Purchase of specialized equipment for IB courses, support for IB student groups, support for special student events - all are examples of the uses to which contributions to the IB Annual Fund have been put. The help provided by the Annual Fund can make the difference between a good educational experience and an outstanding one.
