Mark Keenum: Mississippi State University has a proven record of success, in preparing our students for nationally competitive awards.

Jerry Gilbert: Be it a Truman, or a Goldwater, or even a Rhodes, I think our scholars from Mississippi State compete on a National level, and an international level, extremely well.

Tommy Anderson: We're confident that Mississippi State will continue to prepare students to compete for these nationally external awards.

Chris S.: We know that we provide the students with the right ingredients to win a prestigious fellowship.

Speaker 5: Students come to Mississippi State motivated to succeed. And what they find here is a community of students and faculty that give them the extra push.

Jerry Gilbert: They are challenged at Mississippi State, and I think they work extremely hard to achieve success.

Speaker 6: Departments and Colleges throughout the University give students the opportunity to do nationally competitive, meaningful scholarship.

Speaker 7: One of the things that helps students have the confidence to succeed at the National and International level is that they're mentored closely by faculty members.

Speaker 8: In the classroom, but oftentimes this mentorship extends beyond the classroom, in research labs, in conference preparation.

Jerry Gilbert: Whether it's undergraduate research, study abroad, or actually studying with a faculty member on campus in their research, I think we really prepare them well to be competitive on the National, the International scenes.

Mark Keenum: Well the credit really goes to our faculty and staff, who are doing an outstanding job of creating the student opportunities and experiences that lead to such great success.
