Support Life-Changing Educational Experiences for Morris Students

Almost half of all Morris students study abroad during their time here—more than twice the national average! But these life-changing experiences can be difficult for some to achieve. You can help a deserving, high-achieving student who may otherwise be unable to afford this opportunity with a gift in support of the UMM Study Abroad Scholarship. Together we can continue to offer transformative experiences to Morris students.
