The CAS Opportunity Fund

Generous support of the CAS Opportunity Fund allows the College of Arts and Sciences at UM-Flint to fund research projects, travel, professional development, and more for our faculty, staff, and students.

In 2017, the first batch of funds released helped fund: 

  • travel across the country for internships
  • attendance and presentations at professional conferences
  • new lab equipment
  • research projects
  • travel to academic competitions 

The funding amount for each project isn't large, but the difference it can make is immeasurable. Help support the future students of CAS by giving today!
