Support the College of Music International Student Fund

International students in the MSU College of Music are adapting to new safety protocols for performances, rehearsals, and gigs while also navigating the challenges of living and learning remotely. Due to the lack of music performances as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, student musicians have limited access to internship experiences and performing opportunities which typically help to cover their living expenses and further their musical entrepreneurial studies. These experiences are critical for students' development and success as performers, and enrichment as they begin their careers in a competitive teaching and music industry.

The College of Music International Student Fund ensures international music students have access to innovative, exploratory learning experiences, while conducting meaningful work with partner organizations they are passionate about. Through our collective effort, you can help create engaging opportunities for international students to share their love for music with the world and ensure their livelihoods during this challenging time.
