Invest in the future of Leadership and Innovation

Join us in our mission to empower students and alumni alike through EDLI Connect, a dynamic fundraising initiative!

The founders of the Leadership and Innovation doctoral program (EDLI) at NYU had a visionary goal: to bring people from diverse backgrounds, experiences, and industries together to listen to each other, collaborate, and drive transformative change. This vision extends far beyond the program's duration. Guided by the EDLI Alumni Advisory Group, our campaign aims to provide support to our EDLI community members who may require assistance. Together, we can maintain this inclusive space for learning, problem-solving, and creating meaningful social impact.


We are dedicated to fostering lifelong connections and advancing professional growth for our students and alumni. With your support, we are building bridges between current and former students, closing the gap between academic knowledge and real-world success. Here's a glimpse of how your generous contribution will make a difference:

  • Networking and Professional Development: enable students and alumni to participate in conferences, meetings, and gatherings that foster networking and professional growth. Opportunities that are essential for enhancing our community's collective impact.
  • Tuition Support: help provide essential resources and financial aid to emerging leaders within our community. Ensuring that future and current students can pursue their educational journeys without undue hardship. 
  • Research Grants: foster a community of innovation and enable us to provide research grants and project funding
