  • Hi, waterbrain342.

    The Microsoft Student Partner (MSP) program is for full time college students 17+ years old who want to learn more about professional computing with the goal of getting a related career. You must apply to the program to be considered for the MSP title.

    Here is the primary MSP site. You can apply to the program here.
    https://msdn.microsoft.com/microsoftstudentpartners

    As it states on the MSP website, Microsoft Student Partners do incredible things:

    • Run workshops and hackathons
    • Host tech events and give demos on campus
    • Work alongside Microsoft professionals, assisting them during hackathons and events
    • Join exclusive Microsoft training events to learn the latest technologies
    • Grow and nurture a community of students and faculty on-campus and online
    • Enhance their skills and career opportunities
    • Get amazing jobs

    I also found a list of the top nine (9) reasons students may want to be an MSP, here:

    I found a more detailed list of the MSP benefits. Here:

    • Exclusive MSP events conducted by Microsoft

    • Rewards & Recognition for top performers
    • Networking opportunities
