Give to the Biology Department

image

All donations to the Biology Department are handled through the EMU Foundation. The Foundation provides several ways to give to the Biology Department and helps us to ensure that the funds are used in a manner consistent with the intent of the donor.

We have several existing funds that have been set up as a result of the generosity of previous donors, which are listed below. We are grateful for the many ways in which these funds enhance our programs and the experiences of our students at EMU.

Please email Dr. Daniel Clemans, Department Head at dclemans@emich.edu or call 734-487-4242 if you would like more information about any of the existing funds or the possibility of directing a gift to a new fund. More information about the scholarship funds can be found on our scholarship page. Gifts to the Undergraduate Symposium may also be directed to the benefit of a biology student.
