Joseph's research projects

Underrepresented Prospective Student Transportation/Accommodations Fund

This campaign involves assisting students in travel and accommodations, removing the known barrier of high transportation expenses given our unique geographical location, and allows them to have an introduction to the Michigan Tech experience. The fund will help with transportation, accommodations, and potentially a per diem to offset or eliminate the expenses incurred by these potential Huskies.

Gifts to projects listed on SUPERIORIDEAS.ORG are received and processed by Michigan Tech Fund. Michigan Tech Fund is a tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code acting on behalf of Michigan Technological University. It is the policy of Michigan Tech Fund that a portion of the gifts and/or income therefrom may be used to defray the costs of raising and administering the funds.
