American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) Funding
As a recipient of over $13 million of American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funding, Michigan Technological University is excited to be involved in this opportunity to advance research. These funds will enable our researchers to forge ahead with exploration into new technologies which will impact not only Michigan Tech but also the nation. Job creation and retention is a critical component to the future of our nation, and we are optimistic about the opportunities that will spring forth from our efforts. We are scientific and engineering visionaries, eager to be a part of the revitalization of our country and the world.

March 17, 2010—Michigan Technological University has received $650,000 in federal stimulus funding to support a pilot project to reduce ash tree mortality in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. The project, called SLAM (SLow Ash Mortality), is designed to slow the spread of the emerald ash borer and protect the UP’s ash trees.
October 15, 2009—Where there’s smoke, there may be health risks. And where there’s climate change, there may be more—and more intense—wildfires. What does that mean for the health of people downwind from the smoke?
September 16, 2009—Eight research projects in eight different fields at Michigan Technological University are receiving grants totaling $4,172,719 from the National Science Foundation (NSF). Funding for four of the projects comes from the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act of 2009 (ARRA), also known as federal stimulus money.
August 5, 2009—Michigan Technological University will receive nearly $3 million in federal stimulus funds to develop an interdisciplinary educational program to train engineers and technicians to design and build the next generation of hybrid electric vehicles.
June 18, 2009—Jason Carter, chair of the Department of Exercise Science, Health and Physical Education at Michigan Technological University, will receive $20,900 in federal stimulus funds through the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
May 7, 2009—Michigan Technological University has received $164,521 in federal economic stimulus monies to conduct medical research.
