Make a Difference Giving to Michigan State University


Helping young people realize their potential calls for private support to provide extraordinary learning opportunities and to keep our doors open to the best and brightest regardless of their financial means.

Private support is the engine of opportunity that funds student scholarships and fellowships and strengthens student programs that provide a global perspective.


Tuition Revenue Constant After Inflation

Chart displaying appropriations vs. tuition at Michigan State, Tuition has only increased $65 after inflation.

After inflation, the cost of higher education per student at Michigan public universities went up by only $217 (1.8 percent) over 12 years. At MSU, that increase was only $65. As this chart prepared by the House Fiscal Agency clearly shows, the increase in cost for higher education borne by students and families has been driven almost entirely by the dramatic disinvestment by the state.

My experiences at Michigan State have given me extraordinary opportunities to work on high-level projects and exchange ideas with faculty and professionals already doing my long term career goal—it’s been amazing, challenging, and rewarding. And I know now I want to pursue a career in research.
