The staff at the University Scholarships and Fellowships Advancement Office can work with you to honor the life and memory of a loved one by establishing a scholarship in their name. Our office works with friends and family members on a regular basis to establish scholarships that allow the legacy of individuals to continue through the gift of student support. 

Gifts in lieu of flowers may be sent to Michigan State University in memory of your loved one, and may be directed to the specific fund. If you would like information about this process, please contact Amber Trudell at (517) 353-2116 or atrudell@msu.edu. If you are interested in creating a fund in memory of an individual, please contact our office at 517-432-7345 or via email at empower@supportforstudents.msu.edu.


Provost June Youatt on Giving Back to MSU


Supporting MSU Students through University Scholarships & Fellowships Advancement

We have always believed education can change the course of an individual’s life. As a land-grant institution Michigan State University was founded on the idea that all academically qualified individuals should have access to an education and to the opportunity to create a better future for themselves and others.
