MSU Museum Summer Institute

So many MSU students tell us they’d love to volunteer or intern at the MSU Museum during the summer, but they need to devote every free moment each summer to earning enough money to stay in school. Meanwhile, many of the children we work with from historically disinvested communities want to get to know MSU students.

Give to the MSU Museum and support student volunteer and internship opportunities

Funds will give modest stipends to MSU students to work with community children and youth people, in museum education programs as well as “behind the scenes” work.  Through mentorship with museum professionals, students (including new high school graduates) will have the opportunity to learn "behind the scenes” skills in researching and preserving scientific, cultural, and historical collections, and to develop innovative educational and outreach programs for children and young people from underserved communities in our region.
