The National Museum of American Diplomacy is hosting its second hackathon, this time virtually! Starting July 15, participants will compete using their tech skills and creativity to enhance the general public’s understanding of diplomacy and its related skills.
Over 100 students and recent grads participated in ImpactHack2018. One of the projects resulted in a full-size interactive at the museum. The projects of ImpactHack2020 will also serve as prototypes to freely-accessed interactives in the new museum.
ImpactHack2020 is available to all ages. Explore the two project options, see the full schedule, and sign up. Interested in volunteering? Contact NMAD@state.gov!
The Undergraduate Research Office invites you to the 10th Annual Mid-Michigan Symposium for Undergraduate Research Experiences (Mid-SURE), which will be an asynchronous, virtual event consisting of pre-recorded poster presentations. The virtual symposium will be open to the public on August 4th – 10th.
A link to the symposium will be available on our website (http://urca.msu.edu/) during that time.
Last year, over 400 MSU and visiting students presented their summer research at the symposium. It’s a great opportunity to view the work of our undergraduate Spartans and their research mentors.
Funded by the generosity of the MSUFCU and individual donors, the MSUFCU Internship Opportunity Award provides stipend awards of up to $1,000 each to help cover out-of-pocket expenses related to an unpaid internship. The number of awards will be based on available program funds and demonstrated student interest and need. Contingent awards are available for students who have not accepted an internship offer by the application deadline, but internships must be secured (confirmed) with 10 days of the deadline. (Many awards will be for less than the maximum $1,000 award.)

The Master of Public Health program (MPH) is a 43 credit, fully online, professional degree program. The MPH program is designed to ensure that our students are engaged in coursework and practical training to obtain the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to perform successfully, as public health professionals in the United States and internationally.
What we see in the news today is a representation of public health in action. Trained public health professionals including epidemiologists, emergency managers, community health workers, biostatisticians, physicians, nutritionists and more are working together to keep our communities safe and provide the most up to date and accurate information.
With over 600 graduates, the MPH program at MSU has trained public health professionals and some current public health students working on the front lines as our country works through the global pandemic.
Join us for a virtual information webinar. You’ll hear directly from our admissions counselor and academic advisors regarding general program information, our application process and student guidance throughout the program.
