This fall, a select group of 10 graduate students and 20 undergrads received a Michigan Tech Alumni Association Traditions of Giving Fellowship/Scholarship to help them Create the Future for all of us.
The Fellowship/Scholarship program was created by the Alumni Association Board of Directors as part of their mission to celebrate traditions and create connections for students and alumni.
“We are certain that students can see the value of a Michigan Tech education and we want to demonstrate the value of being part of a vast network of Alumni who have shared in this experience. We are proud to be able to support our students and encourage them to explore all that the association has to offer you right now and into their professional career,” says Darnishia Slade ’98, the organization’s president.
This is the second year of the program which will provide a total of $90,000 in support over three years. Alumni have provided the funding for these awards through generous donations to the Alumni Association over the years.
Recipients of this award are asked to connect to the Michigan Tech Alumni Association through its social networks and invited to participate in the local Keweenaw Alumni Chapter (KAC) activities. They are also encouraged to join the Michigan Tech Student Foundation (MTSF), a student-led campus organization whose motto is “Students Helping Students”.
