Scholarship Details

CANR Education Abroad Scholarship

This scholarship is awarded by the CANR, with the amount and number of scholarships awarded varying depending on available funds. To be eligible, the applicant must be in good academic standing in the CANR and officially accepted in a credit-bearing CANR Education Abroad program. For full details and requirements, fill out the online application and recommendation form.

The Robert C. Davis Family Endowed Fund for Overseas Studies

This scholarship was established through an estate gift from Gladys E. Davis, a teacher who strongly believed in the betterment of one’s self through education. Davis was an avid traveler and supporter of international experiences. The scholarship amount varies and will be awarded to a CANR student who is enrolled in an Education Abroad program. Apply for this scholarship on the main CANR Education Abroad Scholarship application.

The Nancy H. and David E. Bull International Agricultural Travel Support Endowment

This scholarship was established to give CANR students the opportunity to study abroad to pursue agricultural studies. Nancy H. and David E. Bull created it to enable CANR students to make direct contact with global communities within the context of a wide range of agriculture-related programs: production, research, extension, nutrition, distribution, marketing, safety and security. The scholarship amount varies and is available to CANR sophomores and juniors with a GPA of 3.0 or higher. Apply for this scholarship on the main CANR Education Abroad Scholarship application.

The Frances Kaneene Study Abroad Scholarship

The Frances N. Kaneene Study Abroad Scholarship was established to allow motivated and curious undergraduate students in the Department of Community Sustainability (majoring in Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources Education, Environmental Studies and Sustainability, or Sustainable Parks, Recreation and Tourism) to study abroad. In doing so, the scholarship will be a living memorial to the work ethic, values, and inspiration that Frances Kaneene embodied during her 30+ year career guiding hundreds of students as an academic advisor at MSU. Good academic standing, with a minimum 2.5 GPA in the major at the time of application, is required. (More about CSUS scholarships.)
