Every day, our donors…

  • Provide critical scholarship and fellowship support that helps to make a Michigan Engineering education possible. Their gifts also provide the resources for a robust and engaged learning community outside of the classroom, through study abroad experiences, entrepreneurial programs, internships, and student organizations and project teams.
  • Help to empower faculty members who are pursuing research to tackle the world’s most complex challenges and developing new pedagogical methods that promote engaged learning.
  • Ensure that we have the classrooms, laboratories, offices and collaborative spaces needed to continually advance breakthroughs that benefit the common good.
  • Reach all aspects of education and research, providing support wherever it is most needed. From laboratory upgrades to innovative programming, our donors help to prepare the next generation of engineers who are committed to solving global challenges.

We are grateful to our alumni and friends for their generosity and commitment to Michigan Engineering. Thank you!
