MSU Students Experience the World with the Study Abroad Scholarship
Many students attending MSU dream of studying abroad, and through the Credit Union’s endowment of the MSUFCU Study Abroad Scholarship, this opportunity has become a reality for many MSU students. Students who received the scholarship attended a luncheon at the Kellogg Center among representatives of MSUFCU and MSU to share their experiences of traveling the world and studying in their fields of interest.
Student speakers from the scholarship program spoke about their life changing experiences overseas at the luncheon and mentioned that the opportunity to study abroad would not have been possible for them without the financial means of this scholarship. Students were thrilled to talk about having experiences that helped them to further their studies, discover different cultures, and ultimately learn more about themselves.
“The Study Abroad Scholarship truly reflects our Credit Union mission. By offering these students the financial means to have these experiences, we help them to achieve their goals of furthering their education, and by giving them the opportunity to explore the world, we help them to achieve their dreams.” said Patrick McPharlin, MSUFCU’s President and CEO.
MSU has led the nation in study abroad participation among public universities for the last seven years. Nearly 3,000 MSU students study abroad each year in 275 programs in more than 60 countries around the world. Providing some of the largest awards available from the Office of Study Abroad, MSUFCU funds multiple scholarships in amounts from $500 to $2,000 for MSU students studying abroad.
MSUFCU is proud to support the students and people in our community while helping them to achieve their goals and dreams. Learn more about the MSU Office of Study Abroad Scholarships at: http://studyabroad.isp.msu.edu/scholarships/msuosascholarships.html.
