Student Club Grants

The MSU College of Agriculture and Natural Resources Alumni Association has limited funds which it may, at its discretion, make available to qualifying student organizations to help offset the costs of specific special projects or opportunities.

Applications are reviewed twice a year and must be submitted by October 20 for fall semester and February 15 for spring semester. No allocation of funding will be provided for events scheduled within 30 days of the submission deadlines. (i.e. applications submitted in the fall must  have event dates on or after November 20 and those submitted spring semester must be held on or after March 15.)

CANR student clubs and organizations may request funds up to one year in advance of use date. 

Consideration should be made to submit application for events a semester before they are to occur. Allocations will not be provided for events which have already passed.

  • To qualify an undergraduate student organization must be a regular participating member of the CANR Student Senate or must have a representative from the department the club represents. CANR departments with Graduate Student Organizations are also eligible to apply.
  • Funds may be requested in any amount up to $1,000. Special consideration will be made for additional funding for special circumstances and unique scenarios, including but not limited to, hosting national events on the MSU campus.
