The English Department relies upon donations from our alumni and friends to bring writers and scholars to campus for readings and lectures; to support student research and student travel to conferences; and to make special acquisitions of books, films, or equipment. Each year the Department awards up to $12,000 in scholarships to English majors on the basis of both merit and need. We and our students are very grateful for your continued support.

You can make a secure online donation to the Department using the Campaign for Oakland University - Make-a-Gift Form. In the pull down menu for "Category," select College of Arts and Sciences; then, in the pull-down menu for "Fund," you may select English Department Gifts (to support visiting writers and scholars, student research, or acquisitions), or English Department Scholarships.
