MGSP Scholarships


Cultivating Future Public Servants

MSU Political Science is offering two scholarships to students participating in our prestigious Michigan Government Semester Program. Two students accepted into MGSP for the spring will be awarded a stipend to compensate for the lack of earnings from an unpaid government internship.

To apply, submit a 500-word essay to Dr. Marty Jordan describing your interest in and goals for pursuing a career in public service and explain why you are a qualified candidate and should be considered for a scholarship. DEADLINE IS FRIDAY NOV. 10, 2023.

For more information, contact Dr. Jordan at
