We invite you to learn more about how our team can help align your passions to a noble purpose. To learn more about an initiative listed below, or one of our many other giving opportunities, please contact our development team.
Student Scholarships & Fellowships
The Bush School continues to grow and attract an increasing number of tremendously talented students who wish to serve, give back, and make a positive impact on our world. Competitive scholarships and fellowships have a direct impact on developing leaders of tomorrow. They make a profound difference, ensuring students can maximize their Bush School experience through service-learning, volunteer opportunities, and internships.
Faculty Professorships & Fellowships
Through research, teaching, service, and mentorship, Bush School faculty members work tirelessly to honor and embody the Bush School’s dedication to public service. Faculty Professorships and Fellowships attract high-quality faculty to the Bush School, increase retention, and enhance creativity and productivity. They are particularly valuable in celebrating and promoting the continued growth and impact of our up and coming, early to mid-career faculty.
City & County Governance Program
Bush School students inherently have a passion for selfless service. The City and County Governance Program further fosters that passion in our students and will reinforce the Bush School’s position as the recognized leader in producing talented early-career professionals for municipalities in the state of Texas. The Bush School’s contribution to effective management and governance at the local level will be multiplied by preparing young people for the complex leadership and managerial challenges facing cities and counties across the state. Support for students, high-impact learning experiences, faculty and professors of the practice all provide enhanced excellence and impact of the program.

Allen Building Renovations Campaign
Since the Bush School welcomed its first cohort of 17 students in 1997, thousands of students, faculty, staff, government officials, former heads of state and distinguished visitors have come to the Allen Building. There are 41 unique naming opportunities within the Allen Building Renovation Campaign that will include innovative collaboration spaces, rebranding, and overall enhanced facilities to meet current and future needs more effectively. The enhancements will directly impact the student experience by giving our students the space to foster collaboration, inclusion, personal and professional growth as they prepare for a life and career of service to others. The Bush School stands at an exciting time in its history, particularly as we prepare for our 25th Anniversary in 2022. The renovations and enhancements made now will mark a new era for the school and will increase its impact for generations to come.
Intelligence Studies Program
With the ever-changing global landscape, the need to produce more intelligence professionals to serve and protect our country and secure our interests abroad is at an all-time high. The intelligence studies program at the Bush School remains the most highly sought curriculum concentration for both students and future Intelligence Community employers to identify, recruit, and develop the best and brightest talent. Support for students, high-impact learning experiences, faculty and professors of the practice all provide enhanced excellence and impact of the program.
