Support Student Leadership Development by contributing to the Allen B. Clarke and Dennis Forcese CIE Access Endowment Fund

The CIE Access Endowment, founded by Allen B. Clarke, provides funds to develop the leadership capabilities of Carleton students working as peer mentors, workshop facilitators and academic coaches among other program supports.

  • With the revenue from this endowment, we pay former ESP students as they continue with their degree studies at Carleton while giving back to ESP through meaningful employment at the CIE.

DONATE TODAY to give leadership & professional development opportunities to ESP students and alumni!

THANK YOU. Your contribution ensures that former ESP students can work with current ESP students each year as mentors, coaches, and facils.

Award ESP Students for their hard work and persistence.

This endowed fund provides yearly award funding for ESP students who achieve a GPA of A- or higher as they successfully complete ESP and proceed to a degree program. The knowledge that they can win an award motivates ESP students to work hard, maintain good academic habits, and use their resources during the year – workshops, coaching, mentors, and advising.

  • With the revenue from this fund, we award former ESP students with funding towards their tuition as they continue with their degree studies at Carleton.

DONATE TODAY to inspire ESP students to achieve their academic goals.

THANK YOU. Your gifts inspire students of all ages and all walks of life with the confidence and support to succeed and achieve their goals.
