BEST Support for Trainees

The BEST program offers and supports trainees in their professional development and growth. We use program resources to bring in guest speakers, offer workshops, and create other opportunities for trainees to engage in meaningful activities that will help students and post docs to develop skills, cultivate experiences, and provide insights for their next step when they leave their training at MSU.

MSU BEST does not directly fund graduate students via fellowships, assistantships, or salary support.

We also do not offer travel support (though the MSU Graduate School does!)

We are also frequently invited to identify students for particular opportunities; in those instances, trainees are invited to apply and BEST can cover their expenses on a case-by-case basis.
