MSU Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Student Emergency Fund

BMB students working in a labSupport our BMB Spartans in need

COVID-19 is impacting individuals around the world, and here at Michigan State our biochemistry and molecular biology students are no exception. Although many forms of assistance are available, not everyone is able to get the support they need during this time.

Your Support Will Make a Big Difference

Through the BMB Emergency Assistance Fund, BMB students in both the College of Natural Science and Lyman Briggs College can get the immediate financial support they need for assistance with unanticipated emergency expenses surrounding situations such as accidents, illness, death of a family member, fire damage or need for temporary housing. 

Project Budget

Funds will be used to provide assistance to BMB students in need.

During the unprecedented times of this global pandemic, students are experiencing uncertainty, anxiety and concern about their financial circumstances. Unable to work the hours essential for them to meet their needs for the balance of the academic year, students are in a panic wondering what will happen. Your gift can make the difference for that student who will be able to pay the balance of their rent, purchase food or make the payment on their health insurance.

You can make the difference by turning the current moments of madness into a moment of unexpected magic for a Spartan. The gratitude will be unparalleled and your generosity can change a life.
