Cole Scholarship

Study Abroad – The Jeffrey and Kathryn Cole International Study Award provides funds for Honors College members participating in study abroad programs. Applications are due March 1 for summer, fall, or academic year programs.

Students who participate in an MSU-sponsored program will be given preference, but those planning to enroll in programs sponsored by other universities may also apply. Applications from students who have never studied or traveled abroad are particularly welcome. Preference may be given to students who do not have other substantial scholarships. The award recipient must be a member, in good standing, of the MSU Honors College.
