The Cor Fund is the lifeblood of the University of Dallas. Primarily, the Cor Fund supports the education of our students, 96 percent of whom receive scholarships or financial aid from the university in order to attend.

You support the students who come here on scholarship, the research done by our faculty, the speakers providing intellectual enrichment and the recreational activities to nourish the body as well as the soul. We couldn’t do what we do, or be who we are, without you.
