In 2010, the MSU Council of Graduate Students (COGS) established an endowment to recognize disciplinary leadership by graduate and grad-professional students. These winners clearly demonstrated leadership in their respective disciplines and/or professional societies at the local, state, regional, national, or international levels while at MSU. Awards are provided as an MSU fellowship. COGS prefers that the award is used to further the leadership skill development of the awardee.
