The Endowment for the Development of Graduate Education (EDGE) fund was established in early 2009 to support graduate students in units affiliated with the Endowment for the Basic Sciences. Each of the EBS Units (nine of them) contributed $25,000 and these amounts were matched by EB ($225,000) with EBS funds. From this, an endowment was created and we are now soliciting contributions to add to this base to be able to supplement the funding of graduate students in future years. Online donations are being accepted via the secure Michigan Online Giving site.
