The State of Louisiana Board of Regents Endowed Chairs and Professorships Program provides funds to assist Louisiana colleges and universities to recruit and retain the highest quality professors and, therefore, provide the highest possible caliber of education for students.
The endowments are created by private contributions that equal 60% of the endowment matched by 40% from the Board of Regents. Endowed Chairs may be created at $1 and $2 million levels and may be named by the donor and establish perpetual honorariums or memorials.
