The excellence awards at MSU celebrates the diversity of accomplishments by our graduate students. Graduating students are nominated by their department and awarded for one of three categories:
Land Grant Excellence: Students who are highly effective in engaging with the community, by sharing and applying new knowledge that is locally relevant and mutually beneficial.
Scholarship Excellence: Students who have created and disseminated new knowledge that significantly advances our understanding of our world.
Teaching Excellence: Students who have made a high impact on undergraduates’ lives by helping them grow in knowledge, skill, and confidence.
