Innovation Academy Fund for Excellence

The IA Fund for Excellence is a unique opportunity to invest in a distinctly new way of learning. Your support can fund one of the nation’s most forward-looking undergraduate programs and keep IA Gators from 30 different majors on a “collision course” with disruptive ideas, problem-solving, business acumen, ethics, design thinking, and innovation.

Please show your support and pride in the Innovation Academy by participating at one of our funding levels. Support from UF IA students, parents, alumni, and friends is critical in sustaining our mission. This Fund helps provide for—and helps give equitable access to—student experiences, curriculum development and materials, and co-curricular programming that move our vision forward in graduating IA Gator Innovators who utilize design thinking to solve global challenges.
