Why Give to WPI

A Sound Investment With Profound Returns

WPI focuses on harnessing the power of engineering, science, and technology to create solutions for the greatest challenges facing society—challenges related to health, energy, the environment, sustainability, green building, and more. From the outset, the WPI education has been based on a balance of rigorous classroom and project-based learning—of using academic inquiry to serve people everywhere.

Our students come to WPI to gain knowledge and skills that will allow them to impact lives—by exploring the possibility of erecting wind turbines in a Nantucket landfill, redesigning water distribution systems in the slums of Cape Town, South Africa, or applying their skills on countless other meaningful projects. Our students come with their sleeves rolled up, and they are among the most compelling reasons to invest in WPI today.

Hear what some of our students have to say about their WPI education:

Jonathan Baldiga ’09
“Having this endowed scholarship really made the difference for me to come to WPI and to succeed at WPI.”

Elizabeth Schreiber ’10
“I’ve gotten so much from WPI and I’ve learned so much, I just want to give back every chance I can.”

Roseann Gammal ’10
“As a student, I believe in a WPI education—I’m living it. And I’m grateful for those, like George I. Alden and the Trustees of the Alden Trust, who share that belief with me.”

The world also recognizes what a distinctly valuable education WPI provides. Read what The Princeton Review, The Fiske Guide to Colleges, Payscale.com, US News & World Report, and BusinessWeek, among others, have to say about the value of a WPI education.

The time is now. If you invest in WPI, your dollars will contribute to making every WPI student’s experience transformational and help us cultivate the next generation of engineers and scientists who will possess the knowledge and wisdom to make a positive difference in the world.
