Giving

Thank You

During the Empower Extraordinary capital campaign, the Honors College received more than $10 million in gifts from nearly 6,765 donors. This was the largest amount ever raised for the college.

The money has been used to expand existing programs, such as the Honors College’s week of service HC IMPACT, create new opportunities and increase student scholarships — including 31 additional scholarship endowments that have supported nearly 100 students.

"Scholarships allow me to get the most out of my college experience and truly embrace being a Spartan. Knowing that alumni care enough about MSU to donate back to current students speaks to how special of a place it really is. It is inspiring to know that at one point these alumni were in my shoes, and one day I hope to be in a position like theirs.”
