In 1998, Calvin University received a grant from the Detroit-based McGregor Fund to establish a program of student fellowships for summer research with faculty in the arts, humanities, and social sciences. The resulting McGregor Fellowship program has funded collaborative student-faculty research since 1999. Although the original McGregor investment has been exhausted, the program operates with the generous support of private donors and continues to attract Calvin's "best and brightest" students and faculty to collaborative research projects.
