Globie Awards

Each year, OISS is pleased to recognize members of the MSU community who make a special effort to serve international students and scholars. Winners of this award do more than what they are asked, go above and beyond what their positions may require, and make a strong personal impact on the international students and scholars they have helped. 


Everyone on the MSU campus and in the surrounding areas plays a role supporting international students and scholars and creating a welcoming community. 

OISS wants to recognize those who go above and beyond in serving international students in special ways. To learn these special stories, we need your help!

All nominators, and winners are invited to celebrate these local heroes at the Globie Awards Ceremony & Reception in the month of April. 

Nomination Process

The call for nominations begins in early spring each year. Check back then for more information!
