Globie Awards

This award is given to individuals on our campus and in our community who have distinguished themselves by their service to international students and scholars. OIss wishes to honor these unsung heroes who, through acts of kindness both small and large, help international students and scholars through problems and challenges they face while adjusting to life in the United States.


globie_web.JPGThe journey of international students and scholars is full of wonderful and difficult times. Sometimes help is needed along the way. The Office for International Students and Scholars is one of many offices on campus that work with MSU’s international population. Everyone on our campus and in our community plays a role supporting students and scholars and the internationalization of MSU.

OISS needs your help recognizing unsung heroes on campus and in the community who go above and beyond to serve international students, scholars and their families.
