"With MSP's assistance, I was able to attend my first academic conference to present on the research project that I had been working on all year. If it wasn't for MSP's financial contribution I wouldn't have been able to attend the conference. MSP has helped me academically by supporting any research endeavor that I wanted to pursue."
