President M. Roy Wilson ReBUILDetroit Legacy Award

Microscholarships to ReBUILDetroit Scholars

The President M. Roy Wilson ReBUILDetroit Legacy Award will provide microscholarships to students who represent the spirit of a ReBUILDetroit Scholar. The intention is to lessen the financial burden of other WSU students and to provide a space for BUILD Scholars to give back to the community that has given to them by supporting other students who are interested in pursuing careers similar to themselves.

Recipients of this award will be current WSU STEM major/minor students (sophomore-senior standing) who are interested in pursuing a career in the biomedical research field.

Donate today to help us reach our $500 goal. Once we raise $500, a generous anonymous donor will match an additional $500. 

With your help, we can award two $500 scholarships this academic year.
