The National Association of College and University Business Officers recently crunched the numbers to come up with a complete ranking of U.S. college and university endowments for fiscal year 2008.
Granted a lot has changed since then, but with an endowment of $1,059,075,000 at the end of fiscal year 2008, Georgetown was ranked 71st. That figure represents a very slight decrease from the end of fiscal year 2007 endowment, when the endowment stood at about $1.06 billion.
Harvard had the largest endowment nationwide with a total of $36.5 billion. Yale, Stanford, Princeton and the University of Texas system rounded out the top five.
As Campus Grotto noted, Georgetown and Carnegie Mellon are the only two schools in U.S. News and World Report’s Top 25 Universities that aren’t in the top 33 in terms of endowment size.
