Naming Opportunities

A named professorship, graduate student fellowship, research fund, or community space is a lasting gift that permanently associates the name of the donor – or that of a family member, friend, colleague, or professor – with the Koch Institute at MIT. These gifts are often the culmination of a life-long commitment to philanthropy.

Naming opportunities are available at many levels of giving from $50,000 to establish a named undergraduate research opportunity (UROP) fund, to $1 million to fully fund a graduate fellowship, and from $250,000 to several million dollars to name a space in our new building.
