Edward Alexander Endowment

Edward Porter Alexander

Following Edward Alexander’s death in 2003, members of his family decided to commemorate his contributions to the museum field, and his love of the University of Delaware, with the creation of the Edward P. Alexander Endowment. The income from this endowment is intended to support internships and related professional development opportunities for students completing the Museum Studies Certificate.

With the assistance of the College of Arts and Sciences, the Museum Studies Program is celebrating its 50th Anniversary in 2022-2023 with a fundraising campaign committed to growing the Alexander Endowment and making our program the first in the country to guarantee fair-wage paid internships to every student. Please consider supporting our students with a gift today!
