The Columbia College Chicago Faculty & Staff Scholarship Initiative (FSSI) was established in 2009 by a small group of faculty and staff who wanted to support students facing unanticipated financial challenges while on their path to graduation. Thanks to the creative efforts of the FSSI faculty and staff volunteers, the initiative has grown greatly.
All gifts to the Faculty & Staff Scholarship Initiative go toward Scholarship Columbia, a fund dedicated to providing scholarships to high-achieving junior and senior undergraduate students with financial need. Columbia employees may also set up recurring gifts through payroll deduction by completing this form and submitting it to either the committee members below or to the Development and Alumni Relations.
In addition to helping students complete their Columbia degrees, the FSSI mission includes building an engaged community of all faculty and staff.
