University Distinguished Fellowship Fund

To help solve the world’s most complex problems, invest in PhD fellowships for graduate students. The University Distinguished Fellowship Fund supports students who are working hard to meet their research goals, demonstrate leadership potential, and contribute to a diverse educational community. Giving to PhD student fellowships will impact the lives of students who are overcoming obstacles as they pursue academic excellence.

Invest in the future and give to graduate education

The University Distinguished Fellowship Fund impacts community and scholarship all around MSU. The ripple effect and impact to the MSU community is evident in that graduate students are one of our greatest assets when it comes to generating new ideas and innovation. As graduate and professional students complete their training, they also provide critical support for faculty in their ongoing research efforts. Our ability to attract and retain top faculty who build dynamic research programs is directly related to their having talented graduate students to work with. University fellowships help the university recruit potential graduate students to MSU, by offering support to them as they pursue their graduate degrees.
