Cohort 1

Emma Ashley-Grose


I grew up on Green Eagle Farm and I love contributing to my community through providing healthy foods. From an early age I got my education digging in the dirt and I want to continue to learn and share all things nature. This scholarship has aided in my pursuit of a Forestry major while opening doors to growing my MSU community. The scholarship facilitators go above and beyond to provide support and opportunities for each recipient. I am grateful!

Chloe Grabb


My name is ChloeGrabb and I study Horticulture here at MSU. Choosing to study horticulture was the best decision that I’ve ever made. I have enjoyed each and every one of my classes in the program, and it’s incredible how much I’ve already learned. I wake up every morning excited to learn about and work with plants. I am the secretary of the Student Horticulture Association, as well as an undergraduate learning assistant for HRT 203 and NSC 192. I don’t know what I want to do with my degree just yet, but I know that I will be happy with whatever path I choose.

The STEM-FEE Scholarship Program has provided me with extensive financial and academic support that has helped me expand my horizons at Michigan State University. I am passionate about urban farming and environmental sustainability. The STEM FEE program has helped me explore these fields in depth. Professionals have come to speak to us and faculty have done a great job at keeping us motivated and supported. I have been able to study horticulture and do what I love to do every single day. Being a part of this community has helped me find my way and discover a part of me that I am proud to have cultivated through the STEM FEE Scholars Program. I am thankful and forever greatful for the lessons I have learned and the growth I have experienced through this program. It has changed my life trajectory for the better! Loving staff and a beautiful school.
