Michigan university first in nation to offer cannabis chemistry scholarship

A Michigan university is the first in the country to offer a cannabis chemistry scholarship.

Lake Superior State University in Sault Ste. Marie made history in 2019 when it was the nation’s first to open a cannabis chemistry program. Now Steadfast Labs in Hazel Park, a cannabis-testing lab, is offering annual $1,200 scholarships for LSSU students in the program, which teaches students how to analyze cannabis-related compounds and contaminants.

“By funding this scholarship, Steadfast Labs again demonstrates their commitment to supporting future chemists who will enter the workforce and provide public safety in the cannabis field,” Dr. Steven Johnson, dean of the College of Science and the Environment at LSSU, said in a news release.

LSSU also opened a 2,600-square-foot cannabis chemistry facility, the Cannabis Center for Excellence, in February 2020.
