HOUGHTON, Mich. — Michigan Tech University students want to help other students who didn't qualify for federal financial help related to the coronavirus.

The graduate student government organization now is pledging to match up to $10,000 in donations from other students. 

Students received $350 federal grants from the university, but some students might not need the money.
