Michlovic Endowed Scholarship Story

Faculty and staff of the Department of Anthropology & Earth Science, desiring to permanently invest in the future of MSUM, established the Michlovic Endowed Scholarship within the MSUM Alumni Foundation named in honor of Michael G. Michlovic.

Allocations from the Michlovic Endowed Scholarship shall be used for scholarships for Anthropology & Earth Science Students.

Initiated in the spring of 2012, this fund was named the Michlovic Scholarship because Mike helped create our interdisciplinary Anthropology and Earth Science department in 1999. We also recognize Mike’s contributions as chair from 1999-2011 and as professor of anthropology since 1975. Our goal is to raise $10,000 by March 2017 to satisfy the conditions for an endowed scholarship. After this goal is reached, allocations (approximately $500) generated from interest on the principal would be used for annual scholarships.

We presently enroll about 100 students in the department, many of whom need financial support. The Michlovic Scholarship will allow us to support and honor highly engaged majors who do much to inspire faculty and students in the department, while continuing Mike’s focus on experiential learning and well-trained students.
