This spring and summer, 13 more MSU College of Arts & Letters students will graduate from the Citizen Scholars program while earning their undergraduate degrees.   

These 13 Citizen Scholar graduates join 32 other graduates of the program, for a total of 45 Citizen Scholar alumni since the program’s launch in Fall 2016.  

A collaboration between all departments within the College of Arts & Letters, the Citizens Scholars program cultivates commitments to diversity, inclusiveness, social justice, and the positive transformation of self and society. It helps undergraduate students identify and achieve their goals while preparing them for meaningful careers and leadership roles in this complex and interconnected 21st-century world.  

Citizen Scholars gain experience in high-impact learning environments such as study abroad, study away, internships, service learning, and civic interactions. Students who complete the program receive a $5,000 scholarship to be used for study abroad, study away, undergraduate research, internships, or other enrichment opportunities.
