Giving Opportunities

Your Support Helps Us . . .

The College of Sciences and Arts faces challenges common to all areas of the University—indeed to most institutions of higher education nation wide. It is expensive to maintain state-of-the-art research facilities and classrooms—especially when rapidly changing technological possibilities coexist with tightening budgets. Increasingly, the support and assistance of our alumni and friends are essential for enabling the excellence that we seek.

What Your Gift Could Accomplish

Matthew Songer, (Biological Sciences '79) and Laura Songer (Biological Sciences '80) have generously donated funds to the College of Sciences and Arts (CSA) to support a research project competition for undergraduate and graduate students. Remembering their own eagerness to engage in research during their undergraduate years, the Songers established these awards to stimulate and encourage opportunities for original research by current Michigan Tech students. The College is extremely grateful for the Songers' continuing interest in, and support of, Michigan Tech's programs in human health and medicine. 

Through donations, the college offers additional scholarships for students to help continue in their degree.
