"I have seen MSP really assist the scholars, here at the J-School, with life and career-changing opportunities.  The leadership and social activism skills they have learned have helped many of them go on to graduate school, the military and various media professional careers."  ~ Dr. Jerry Crawford II, Associate Professor and MSP Director in Journalism & Mass Communications

"With MSP's assistance, I was able to attend my first academic conference to present on the research project that I had been working on all year.  If it wasn't for MSP's financial contribution I wouldn't have been able to attend the conference. MSP has helped me academically by supporting any research endeavor that I wanted to pursue." Mona Ahmed, Senior MSP Scholar in Journalism and Mass Communications
