LSA Annual Giving Programs

SUPPORTING STUDENTS THROUGH THE COVID-19 CRISIS

Many of our generous alumni and donors have asked how they can help LSA students during this uncertain time. A gift to the LSA Student Emergency Fund will provide assistance to student facing hardships because of the crisis. Thank you for your generosity!

Every gift makes a difference.

Gifts of every size help students every day. Gifts to our LSA Annual Funds not only provide vital support so that admitted students can enroll, but they also open up opportunities for internships, study abroad, and engaged-learning experiences that give our graduates a crucial advantage as they begin their careers. You can make a difference in a student’s life by giving today to one of our key support initiatives.

Here are two important ways to support students today:

LSA Fund for Scholarships

Your donation to the LSA scholarship fund helps ensure that every student can attend U-M regardless of their financial backgrounds. This fund is a top priority for the College, and also supports students in need because of the COVID-19 crisis. About 70% of LSA undergraduates receive some sort of financial support through scholarships. Last Spring, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the College of LSA was able to award more than $134,000 in emergency scholarship aid to undergraduates. As students begin the fall semester, this need will continue to grow.

LSA Fund for Student Internships

Your support allows every LSA student the ability to pursue life-changing professional opportunities where they can apply what they've learned to real-world experiences. Last year, the LSA Opportunity Hub awarded over $1 million in scholarships to support student internship experiences. As paid internships will be increasingly difficult to find during the COVID-19 crisis, a gift to this fund truly makes a difference. A gift of $3,500 supports a student working locally for a summer. Increasing your impact to $5,000 would support a student who needs to travel for their work, and a gift of $25,000 could fund internships for five LSA students.

Other important ways your giving can make a difference:
 

LSA Fund for Program Support

Your support will assist us in providing curriculum innovation, interdisciplinary courses, technology upgrades, and enhancing the arts to help the college lead and respond to change.  Unrestricted donations to this fund are critical throughout the year as we respond to the areas of greatest need.

LSA Fund for Faculty Support

With your generous support we can bolster recruitment, retention, training, and research to keep top faculty at LSA. A gift of any size will have a tremendous impact on ensuring we support our talented faculty members in their teaching and research.
 

Please note that we continue to accept support for our two travel related annual funds, and they will be awarded as soon as students are able to safely travel again.

LSA Passport Scholarship Fund

Your donation helps cover the cost of a passport for need-based students, and then we'll guide them through the process of getting their documentation. With passport in hand, LSA students can take advantage of a variety of study and internship abroad opportunities at the university.

LSA Student Global Experience Initative

Your gift enables students to venture into the world and bring home new perspectives, unique understanding, and global awareness.
