The Need is great for Charitable Gifts

Student Scholarships

female students

Students are the first priority on the campus of Pittsburg State University. We strive to provide the best academic experience possible and help provide funds so more students are able to have an advanced education. Many PSU students are the first generation to attend college.

Our goal is to double the amount of scholarship dollars given out. We can do that through annual and endowed scholarships.

Faculty Development

Students in Virginia Rider's class


If Pittsburg State University is to recruit and retain faculty with outstanding academic credentials coupled with significant teaching, research and service experience, the University must look to private resources to enhance funding for faculty compensation, professional development and research, and service activities.

The Faculty of Distinction Program supports this need. Through this program, the state provides matching funds to earnings on endowments established to enable the universities to recruit and retain faculty of extraordinary qualifications.

Campus Facilities

Fine & Performing Arts Building

Fine and Performing Arts Center

The impact of a new facility will not only be felt by deserving students on campus who need an adequate facility to prepare for their futures but by the whole regional community. Pittsburg State University provides exposure to the fine and performing arts to its community that could change a person’s life forever and give them a chance to experience the world in their own town.
Dean's Fund for Excellence


Unrestricted funds are critical for the mission of each college to be accomplished. These are the funds donated where the Dean will allocate them to the area of the greatest need.

These donations fund areas such as technology, programming, equipment, and renovation
