Resources for MSU Faculty/Advisers

How can I help?

As MSU Faculty and Advisers, you can help academically talented students learn about and apply for major national and international scholarships and fellowships. As you come into contact with high achieving students, please feel free to refer those students to the NIFS Office and we will take it from there. To assist you in those efforts, the NIFS Office has created these resources for you – from handouts and calendars to video testimonials. Need an additional tool? Feel free to contact the NIFS Office at or call 517-884-7650.

Do you have a student to recommend for a scholarship or fellowship? 

If you are aware of an exceptional student who you believe would be a good fit for a scholarship or fellowship, please email us at with information about the student.
