Giving Opportunities

Gifts allow us to grow our programs and facilities, helping to improve the quality of education provided to our students. Because state support for higher education has declined significantly in recent years, gifts of any size have an even greater impact on transforming individual lives, attracting world-class faculty members, and building innovative programs.

Thank you for your generosity.

Jerry Caspary Endowed Scholarship

This scholarship was endowed by the family of Jerry Caspary, who was the first dean of the School of Technology. To reflect the family's wishes, only undergraduate students are considered for this scholarship award. Preference is given to students from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Financial need is a factor.

Senior Design Projects

Support for Senior Design projects is limited, making it difficult for students to secure funds. Whether you or your employer would like to support the Senior Design program as a whole or prefer to designate funds to a specific student project, contributions to this fund provide an immediate and direct impact on the education of our students.

Progress total may take up to 24 hours to update.

Programs and Facilities

Each of our programs provides a hands-on, lab-intensive student experience. Well-equipped facilities are an integral part of this educational experience: students come here to roll up their sleeves and get their hands on technology.
