Thank you for your interest in supporting students at Michigan State University! The University Scholarships & Fellowships Advancement Office is here to serve you by helping you to identify the areas of giving at the university that will be most meaningful to you. 

We primarily work with funds that support students through university-wide undergraduate scholarships and graduate fellowships. These awards include those that are not limited by major or college affiliation, as well as certain geographic- or affiliation-based awards, such as those sponsored by our generous alumni communities, other organizations and individuals. 

If you are interested in establishing your own expendable or endowed scholarship or fellowship, we can make the process easy. We'll help you identify your goals for the fund, we'll draft an agreement and we'll help you through the donation process. We can also offer guidance on planned and estate giving and stock giving options. For more information on establishing a fund, please contact our office at (517) 432-7345 or email Empower@SupportForStudents.msu.edu

Another option you may wish to consider is making a gift (or an annual gift) to one of our existing funds. We can help you identify existing funds in which your gift can make an impact and that align with your interests and preferences. Each dean also sets priority funds, which you can explore on this website (see options under “Make Your Impact" in the navigation menu above). Each link will provide you with information on how your support will make a difference in a student's life by supporting scholarships and fellowships at Michigan State University.

You can make your gift online by clicking any of the donation links on this website. You may also arrange for a gift pledge by contacting our office at (517) 432-7345.

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.
