Research Projects

Superior Ideas

When researchers have the next big idea, they should have every opportunity to carry out their project. We created a pretty big idea too: through crowdfunding, we can raise funds for small, high-quality university research and public service projects that are not normally suited for grant funding.

Your donation funds active research at Michigan Tech. Do you want to help us investigate the causes and effects of sleep disorders? Monitor active volcanoes? Send satellites to the stars? Superior Ideas makes it easy to tailor your donation to your personal interests and values.

Corporate Sponsors

We have industry relations contacts who are ready to speak with you about partnering opportunities. Your contribution to research could include gifts in kind, sponsored projects, or cash donations. Contact our industry relations team to learn more.

 "For Michigan Tech to provide the best learning environment and prepare its students for success in their lives and careers, it needs to be one of the top research universities."
