#GivingBlueday: Give for the Future of the Ford School

Date & time

Nov 28, 2017, 12:00 am-11:55 pm EST


Online and social media

It's the U-M's 200th birthday, and we're celebrating the university's rich history and future possibilities.

From midnight through 11:59 p.m. EST, you can be a victor for the Ford School and a victor for Michigan by making a gift to support what you are most passionate about at U-M. Your gift, no matter the size, will make a difference. You can even increase the size of your gift with funding from matching gifts and challenges that you can participate in throughout the day. No matter where you are, or the time of day, you can support what you love about Michigan.

By choosing to support the Ford School on Giving Blueday, you'll join other members of the Ford School family from around the world—alumni, students, faculty, staff, parents, and friends—to create an enormous impact.

Here are areas of highest need at the Ford School:

  • Dean's Strategic Fund
    A gift to the Dean's Strategic Fund provides financial support for unpaid student internships, faculty research projects, exchange programs, and other strategic initiatives that arise throughout the course of the year.
  • Graduate Fellowship Fund
    Your gift will directly support students by providing financial aid packages essential for recruiting and retaining the most talented students; students who will use their Ford School education to become the policy leaders of the future.  
  • Graduate Internship Fund
    Gifts to the Graduate Internship Fund help Ford School students defray the costs of summer internships, making it possible for them to select an internship most relevant to their career goals.
  • Undergraduate Internship and Travel Fund
    Gifts to the Undergraduate Internship and Travel Fund assist students in supplemental educational pursuits such as internships and study abroad experiences, and allow them to practice the skills they are developing at the Ford School.
  • Undergraduate Scholarship Fund
    Gifts to the Undergraduate Scholarship Fund help alleviate financial hardships on students by increasing financial aid and providing more support to talented students from all backgrounds, enabling them to graduate with less debt.
