David D. Horner Scholarship Fund

Times of crisis can happen to anyone at any time. The situations that cause a student to apply for emergency assistance are broad-based—from the loss of housing to family health issues to unexpected academic costs—and can put their education at risk. International students are extremely vulnerable because of restrictions on employment, the high cost of attending MSU, ineligibility for most financial aid programs, and the potential negative impact on their immigration status. Through the Horner Fund, international students are able to find the assistance they need to continue their education at MSU, and positively contribute to the Spartan community and beyond.

Give to the Horner Fund and support international students.

The David D. Horner International Student Scholarship Fund provides emergency assistance to international students in critical financial distress. Funds raised will be awarded by and at the discretion of the Office for International Students and Scholars at Michigan State University without expectation of repayment. These funds can be used to defray living expenses, pay for travel to the student’s home country if needed, pay unexpected medical bills, and assist with a myriad of other expenses.

International students and scholars are an integral part of MSU’s global campus. Their participation in the classroom and in the Spartan community help foster a robust educational experience for all students. MSU is dedicated to providing an inclusive, supporting learning environment that gives Spartans everything they need to tackle the world’s biggest challenges.
