Giving Blueday 2018: Support what you ♡ about the Ford School

Date & time

Nov 27, 2018, 12:00 am-11:55 pm EST



From midnight through 11:59 p.m. EST, Fordies around the globe have a unique opportunity to come together and support what each of us loves about the Ford School and the University of Michigan. One day. All of us. What will you do in one day?

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 the Ford School.

Make an impact through a gift to one of our areas of highest need:

  • 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.
  • BA fellowships and internships
    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. Please note: Gifts to the BA Internship Fund should be made to the Dean’s Strategic Fund where they will be earmarked for BA Internships.
  • Graduate fellowships and internships
    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. 
  • IEDP Morocco: International Economic Development Program
    Gifts to the International Economic Development Program support this innovative three-credit academic program that serves as an experiential learning opportunity for graduate students to think and walk through the multi-faceted experience of an international project from start to finish. This year's IEDP course will focus on Morocco.
