Endowed Professorships and Directorships

Endowed professorships help Stanford attract and retain top faculty. They are the highest honor the university can bestow upon its most distinguished faculty, and they also enable us to offer competitive packages in recruiting and retaining scholars who are in high demand around the country and the world. Endowed professorship donors are an elite group of Stanford's most farsighted and generous friends. Endowed funds establish permanent investments and provide a continuing source of support. Donors may establish professorships in their own names or in the names of others whom they wish to honor, and the chairs will exist in perpetuity.
