Support The Graduate School Emergency Fund

Crucial to Our Campus Community

Michigan State University is home to about 11,000 graduate students, who represent the next generation of groundbreaking scholars, scientists, veterinarians, lawyers, doctors, and educators. The teaching contributions of graduate instructors touches the professional and intellectual trajectory of students that has gone through MSU and their research contributions fuel the landmark work that makes MSU one of the country’s leading public research universities.

Your Support Will Make a Difference

The economic and public health impacts of the COVID-19 crisis has created uncertainty and precarity among graduate students. Graduate students who have historically relied for financial stability on sources like second jobs or income from a working spouse or partner to cover necessary cost of living have lost those sources of income. Many are even at risk of being unable to afford rent and groceries. Many also have families with young children to support while pursuing their education. Please join us in addressing this challenge.

In response to this crisis, the MSU Graduate School is committed to providing Emergency Funding to graduate students in times of need. Your gift can make the difference for the health, safety, and security of the graduate students that are, in so many ways, the heart of MSU.
