Funding Student Research

The Graduate Research and Scholarly Activity (GRSA) award funds graduate student research projects in all academic disciplines.

"Under the Soil: Examining the Interactions between Plant Roots, Mycorrhizal Fungi, and Soil Bacteria" - Benjamin Bolcer, Master's in Biology

"Characterization of Glioblastoma Multiforme Cell Types with Chlorotoxin, a Scorpion Venom Protein" - Aaron Mellesmoen, Master's in Clinical Molecular Genetics

"On Detroit: Scenes from the Edge" - Jennifer Quartararo, Master's in English


Advancing Graduate Studies & Research Goals

Financial gifts to the College of Graduate Studies & Research are used in a variety of areas to advance our goals. These could be graduate program development, expanding student access, or supporting research infrastructure to name a few. NMU GS&R is committed to nurturing the humans the future needs, not just professionally, but also personally, morally, and communally. Those, we believe, are the sort of humans we'll need for a better world.
