College of Natural Science Dean’s Research Scholars Endowment Fund

The College of Natural Science (NatSci) Dean’s Research Scholars program grew out of a vision to support students conducting undergraduate research and connect them with alumni and friends. The Dean’s Research Scholars are an elite group of undergraduate students who have research experience, proven academic success, and who exemplify the traits of true Spartans: hard-working, intelligent, problem-solvers. They serve as ambassadors for NatSci at engagements across the country, sharing their research and classroom experiences and giving alumni a glimpse of what it’s like to be a student at MSU today. As we celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Dean’s Research Scholars program and the achievements of its alums, we need your help to ensure that this life-changing program can continue to support students for years to come.

You can make a difference and change a student’s life.

Your gift will enable NatSci to continue offering this exceptional program. Stipends allow students the financial freedom to focus on undergraduate research and pursue their professional interests. Students gain invaluable science communication skills as well as networking experience that will serve them in the classroom and beyond.
