Michigan State University Strategic Communication master's student Marc Rodriguez was recently awarded an Education Opportunity Fellowship from MSU’s Graduate School.
He is one of 90 graduate students to receive the award, which amounts to $3,000 split between the upcoming fall and spring semesters.
Rodriguez said he is “humbled and honored” to receive the award.
“I just finished my first course in the StratCom program, and the fellowship is a great motivator,” he said. “A Michigan native, I live in Madison, Wisconsin currently, so the fellowship is a much-appreciated way to off-set out-of-state tuition.
“I received the award letter while I had family visit. It felt great to make everyone proud and to inspire my teenaged nephews.”
