The Cor Fund

Funding the Future

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. The Cor Fund also supports faculty research and development so that UD can continue to attract and retain the best professors, who are top experts and practitioners in their fields. In addition, the Cor Fund provides programming and services to enhance student well-being and success. Your support for the Cor Fund makes everything we do at UD possible: you allow us to keep the lights on both figuratively and literally. 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.

The Cor Fund supports five main areas: 

Student Scholarships

Maggie Chevey“ I love UD because of the excellence that it stands for in every area. But I am sold on UD because this excellence is actually achieved through the demands of the professors and the determination of the students. My dream of experiencing this unique community came true only with the help of financial aid. ”- Maggie Chavey | Class of 2021

 

Mike Murray“ I support the University of Dallas by playing in the Annual Galecke Open because of my personal involvement and love of the University and The Catholic Foundation’s long-time, deep commitment to an institution absolutely critical to the flourishing of the local, national and universal Church. ”- Mike Murray | Sr. Development Officer, The Catholic Foundation
