Alumni Resource Matchmaker

New! ARM your organization with resources from the alumni community.

The Alumni Board of Directors has a tradition of supporting student organizations and initiatives through the Student Initiative Support Program (SISP). This year, the Board is excited to expand SISP into a new program that will leverage the broader Michigan Tech alumni community, bringing more resources to more student initiatives. This new program is known as the Alumni Resource Matchmaker (ARM) and kicks off with a campaign this April 2023!

Stay tuned for more to come on ARM.

Student groups are still encouraged to apply through the application below for traditional funds.
