For University Scholarships & Fellowships staff, spring means travel season!

Spring marks a time of increased travel for many of our office staff. Our advancement team staff and our deans are busy attending conferences, speaking at events, and meeting with friends and alumni across the country. In the last two months, representatives from University Scholarships & Fellowships have traveled from East Lansing to:

  • California: San Francisco, San Jose and Sacramento
  • Colorado: Denver and Littleton
  • Florida: Naples
  • Indiana: Indianapolis
  • Illinois: Chicago
  • Michigan: Ann Arbor, Grand Rapids, and Troy
  • Texas: Austin

In between, we've hosted several receptions and events on campus including honoring the TIAA-Cref Ruth Simms Hamilton graduate fellowship recipient and unveiling the permanent art exhibit made possible by a generous donation from Jerry and Gwen Paulson.

In some cases these trips were in conjunction with an MSU-sponsored event. This was the case with Naples, Florida, where MSU hosted its annual Winter University. It was also the case for a trip to California, where MSU teamed up with IBM to sponsor a summit on the talent needs of innovative companies and ways they can work with higher education institutions to develop talent. You can read more about that in our post, T-Summit 2014: Cultivating Tomorrow’s Talent Today.
