Scholar Showcase

The Annual Scholar Showcase provides an opportunity for MSU’s visiting scholars to share their research with the MSU community and network with their peers, faculty, and students. Join us in exploring the research being conducted at MSU by visiting scholars!

Celebrate and Connect at the Showcase Reception

Join OISS to learn, appreciate, and get inspired by our scholars’ work here at MSU. This will give you the opportunity to ask questions and connect with professionals in the field of your interest! 

The 2022 Scholar Showcase will be held during a special OISS Coffee Hour on Friday, April 8th from 4:00-6:00PM EST in the International Center, Spartan Rooms B & C. Light refreshments will be served.
