International Fellowships

These awards are for students studying abroad or traveling abroad for academic purposes. 

The MSU Jake Jabs College of Business & Entrepreneurship (JJCBE) is once again pleased to offer fellowships to JJCBE students for international activities. In 2016-17, we awarded over $20,000 to 20 students studying in 12 different countries. We encourage any student planning a business education experience abroad to apply for funding assistance through the Bracken Center.
