Give to SPS

Providing access to an exceptional education

At its core, the Northwestern University School of Professional Studies (SPS) is dedicated to providing a superior education to adult learners. SPS is a national leader in continuing education that offers new-traditional students access to the exceptional learning opportunities of Northwestern University.

SPS attracts outstanding students and, with your support, provides them with the knowledge and skills needed to advance in their fields and make meaningful contributions — locally, nationally, and globally.

Your gift to SPS will enhance this academic experience through investments in these priorities:

  • Recognizing academic excellence by providing merit- or need-based scholarships to academically talented students.
  • Advancing knowledge by enabling students to participate in research opportunities with renowned Northwestern faculty.
  • Supporting valuable hands-on experience by facilitating students’ participation in unpaid internship opportunities.

Designate your gift to an individual program or give to the School of Professional Studies Annual Fund, which provides resources to support new activities and sustained opportunities.

Leadership contributions of $1,000 or more annually to SPS are recognized by membership in the Chester Gould Society.
