Supporting The Best In All Our Students

By investing in our students, Michigan State is preparing the next generation of thinkers, artists, problem solvers, and leaders. This 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.

We must build upon our strengths as a destination for advanced learning and scholarship. It is imperative that we provide an environment where talented men and women enjoy an engaged learning experience that nurtures their potential.

More importantly, we must accomplish this while serving students from a variety of backgrounds and from all sectors of society. We believe talented men and women deserve the very best in higher education, and this aspiration should not be denied because of financial circumstance.


University Scholarships and Fellowships seeks to raise $43.0 million in the Empower Extraordinary campaign. We will achieve this goal with a mix of endowment and annual funds.


To date we have raised $69.0 million, but more private support is needed to achieve our full potential and propel this great university forward.
