Michigan Ross Annual Fund

One fund can make a world of difference: the Michigan Ross Annual Fund. Donor support is vital because the Annual Fund provides for all of these essential areas of the school:

Impact of COVID-19: The Michigan Ross Annual Fund remains our area of greatest need, as it provides the most flexibility for the Dean’s Office, Ross Finance Office, and Financial Aid Office to work together to address the unprecedented ways the COVID-19 response impacts our students, faculty, and staff. Gifts will be used to provide time-sensitive support in areas like housing assistance and transportation, technology expenses, and other essentials needed to continue our mission of teaching and learning in a remote environment.

Student Support

Our students are establishing new standards of excellence through their academic achievements, entrepreneurship, and community engagement. Your support of the Michigan Ross Annual Fund enables us to attract the next generation of leaders and provide a world-class business education to these exceptional students. 

The World of Difference Scholarship is made possible by the thousands of alumni, friends, faculty/staff, and students who support the Michigan Ross Annual Fund. Read about the inaugural recipient, Kenneth Daniel Jr., BBA '20.



Engaged Learning

Michigan Ross changed the landscape of business education 25 years ago with its signature Multidisciplinary Action Projects (MAP) program. Today, innovation continues: No other school can equal our students’ opportunities to start, advise, lead, and invest in real-world businesses.

We call this Ross Experiences in Action-Based Learning: REAL. Your support of the Michigan Ross Annual Fund allows us to sustain and enhance these engaged learning experiences.


Bold Ideas

If business is to be a force for good in the world, business schools must champion research and engage the public on issues of economic and societal importance. Our Business+Impact Initiative, which brings faculty, students, and community members together to translate interdisciplinary research into actionable, positive change, is a shining example of this belief in action. 

Your support of the Michigan Ross Annual Fund ensures we continue to make social, economic, and sustainability impact part of the DNA at Ross. 

The Michigan Ross Annual Fund allows us to say "yes" — yes to scholarships for exceptional students, yes to innovative action-based and global learning experiences, yes to pioneering research, and yes to revolutionary new programs that drive transformational results. 

Please join us in our mission to build a better world through business by making your gift to the Michigan Ross Annual Fund today. Together, we can make a world of difference.
