The MSU Federal Credit Union supports students through their Study Abroad Scholarship.
For the fifth year in a row, MSU has led the nation in undergraduate study abroad participation thanks in part to the MSU Federal Credit Union Study Abroad Scholarship, established in 2003 with an endowed gift of $2.5 million. The endowment provides scholarships for about 130 students each year to participate in an international academic experience.
At the 2010 annual scholarship recognition luncheon President Lou Anna K. Simon extended remarks of appreciation for MSUFCU’s support, adding that MSU has both the capacity and an obligation to help students, Michigan, and beyond to benefit from new global realities. She noted that MSUFCU’s gifts to Study Abroad help the university to meet these responsibilities by enabling more students to broaden their global perspectives.
