University Distinguished Fellowship Fund

University Fellowships bring the best and brightest graduate students from all walks of life to MSU, supporting and enhancing the university’s reputation as an exemplary research community.

The Graduate School offers fellowship programs that provide financial support for outstanding students who plan to enroll in a doctoral or Master of Fine Arts program. 

University Fellows are selected for demonstrating academic excellence, leadership potential, and perseverance. During their time as scholars-in-training at MSU, University Fellows play a key role in generating groundbreaking research. They leave MSU as leaders, thinkers, and scientists equipped to tackle complex societal problems and committed to creating a better future for all. They carry forward the Spartan mantle of advancing the common good with uncommon will.

Give to the University Distinguished Fellowship Fund to help recruit talented Spartans.
