Support New Biology

All gifts to the Department of New Biology are greatly appreciated. All donors have an opportunity to support research efforts, faculty and students, laboratories, and seed programs in the department at many levels. Donors can choose to create named funds, which are either endowed or expendable for professorships, laboratories, and fellowships (see the table below).

TITLE AMOUNT
Endowed professorship 1,000,000 KRW
Named laboratory for a newly-hired faculty member 500,000 KRW
Endowed graduate fellowship — annual tuition and stipend 500,000KRW
Expendable graduate fellowship — tuition and stipend for four years 300,000 KRW
Endowed summer graduate fellowship 60,000 KRW
Expendable graduate fellowship — tuition and stipend for one year 60,000 KRW

Deferred gifts and other tax planning approaches can often make more substantial gifts possible. Through a planned gift, alumni/ae can give assets to DGIST while retaining the income. Bequests can be made in the form of a specific gift of cash or property, or a percentage of an estate.

Also, the gifts in all amounts are invaluable to the following funds:

  • Department’s discretionary fund: When you give to the biology discretionary fund, the department has the opportunity to use the funds where they are most needed at the time.
  • New Biology fellowship fund: Contributing to the New Biology fellowship fund encourages students to perform outstanding research activities. The fellowship will be given to students who jointed in the past and performed outstanding research in their spatialized areas. This fund provides assistance with expenses for conference participation.
  • Graduate Student Events Fund: Giving to the student events fund will provide much-needed support for graduate students in the Department of Biology. The support will help build the foundation both socially and scientifically, giving students the opportunity to interact with faculty and their peers as they pursue their research careers.

All kinds of gifts will have a long-lasting impact on the department, for which donors will be recognized and remembered.
