Recognizing and honoring students for exemplary community-engaged scholarship during their years of graduate study

Each year, Michigan State University invites nominations for the Graduate Student Award for Community Engagement Scholarship, conferred in recognition of exemplary community-engaged scholarship by a graduate or graduate professional student.

Up to four students (one in each category listed on the Nomination Process webpage) will be selected as recipients of the Graduate Student Award for Community Engagement Scholarship annually. Award recipients will receive a plaque to memorialize the accomplishment and a $750 stipend. Award recipients will be formally recognized at the annual Michigan State University Outreach and Engagement Awards Ceremony.

This award program is jointly sponsored by the office of the Vice Provost for University Outreach and Engagement and the MSU Graduate School.

Nomination Process

Nominations should be initiated and completed by students. Faculty, administrators, community partners, or members of the general public are encouraged to assist the student in their application.
