International Student Leadership and Engagement Fund

Student life has been disrupted by the pandemic, and international student organizations have lost important ground in creating community and a sense of belonging for international students at MSU. To jump start a new generation of student leaders from across the globe, the Office for International Students and Scholars is launching the new International Student Leadership and Engagement Fund.

When international student organizations thrive, they provide:

  • Events that connect international students with their home region, language, and culture during their time in East Lansing;
  • Opportunities for international students to develop skills in leadership, advocacy, event planning, volunteer recruitment, and public speaking; and,
  • Avenues for students, faculty, staff and community members to experience different cultures through engaging, interactive programming at RSO events.

Help us make MSU a vibrant global community—one where all students feel at home.

Launch the new International Student Leadership and Engagement Fund, and jump start a new generation of global Spartan leaders!

The first two projects the new fund will support are as follows:

  1. Providing the MSU International Students Association with funds to support international student organization events and leadership development (60%); and,
  2. Supporting the annual International Student Summit, an annual summit for international student leaders with university leadership (20%).

The remaining 20% of the goal will be set aside to support the annual MSU Global Festival, a community-wide event celebrating the cultures represented at MSU through performances, exhibits and more.
