Educational/Scholarship Opportunities


University Outreach and Engagement and The Graduate School are launching a new fellows program focused on urban community engagement in the Greater Lansing area. The pilot fellows program will run Spring & Summer 2024, with a focus on community partner needs assessment and design of the full fellows program, which is slated to run Fall 2024-Spring 2025.


MSU's Office for Education Abroad, the Alliance for African Partnership (AAP), and the Global Youth Advancement Network (GYAN) anticipate welcoming to our COIL Faculty Fellows Program-Africa a total of twelve fellows (six from MSU and six from African AAP-affiliated universities), yielding six teams/pairs of fellows.


The Graduate Certification in Community Engagement is a professional development program open to graduate and professional students in all 17 MSU colleges. Through workshops, a community project, and a portfolio, this flexible, no-cost program helps students learn new mindsets and skills for their community-engaged research, creative activities, teaching/learning, service, and practice activities. This program is for students who like to make a difference through their scholarship, enjoy working with community partners on projects, and like learning with interdisciplinary peers. This year, workshops will be offered via zoom on Friday afternoons, with an asynchronous version available.


Attention: Early and Mid-Career Faculty and Academic Staff. University Outreach and Engagement is pleased to announce the launch of the Community Engaged Research Fellows Program in the Fall of 2023.
