Giving to Entomology
We deeply appreciate the support we receive from loyal alumni and friends. Private gifts provide scholarships for deserving undergraduates, enable us to attract the best and brightest graduate students, help us to retain the most talented faculty and staff, and provide support for new initiatives.

Insect Research Collection
The UW Insect Research Collection (WIRC) houses 3,000,000 curated specimens with more than 5,000,000 additional specimens held largely as EtOH bulk samples sorted by project or Order. The WIRC is the result of nearly 170 years of collecting by amateur and professional entomologists. Although worldwide in general scope, as the only Wisconsin entomological collection with a largely research-based mission, the WIRC focuses primarily on the entomofauna of Wisconsin and the Upper Midwest & Great Lakes regions.
