Study Abroad Scholarship
MSU International Studies and Programs and the College of Education offer this competitive $1,000 scholarship for teacher education students participating in MSU-sponsored study abroad programs in Africa, Asia, or Latin American in summer or fall 2023 or spring 2024.
Global Educators Cohort Program (GECP)
To meet the challenge of preparing future educators for personal and professional success in the global context of the 21st century, the College of Education at Michigan State University has launched GECP, a specialized teacher preparation program focused on global and international perspectives. Cohort participants enjoy all the benefits of a nationally ranked teacher preparation program but also have the opportunity to study, socialize, and engage in hands-on, practical learning activities with a small group of fellow students. GECP students enjoy many advantages, such as individualized mentorship by faculty, practicing teachers, and administrators with expertise and experience in global and international education; opportunities to participate in special seminars, undergraduate research opportunities, and special, smaller, faculty-led, course sections designed specifically for members of GECP.
Please visit the GECP website or direct any questions to Dr. Bethany Wilinski (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dr. Alyssa Morley (email@example.com).
Reeves Scholars Program (RSP)
RSP is a reciprocal exchange between future teachers at Michigan State University in the United States and at the University of Cape Coast in Ghana. A cohort of 10 scholars will be selected each year (five from each university) for virtual learning opportunities featuring scholars from both institutions. Cohort participants will be able to network with each other and with expert faculty, as well as learn how to become an agent of change in their classroom.
