Application Procedure

To be eligible for this scholarship you must submit a completed application packet, including admission application form and college transcripts by the May 31 priority application deadline.


Be admitted to MSU for the Spring 2016 semester as a new transfer and meet all of the following requirements:

1. Have completed at least 30 hours of college coursework; and

2. Have a cumulative college GPA of 3.5 or higher

“New incoming freshmen” include students transferring that have completed fewer than 30 hours of college credit. “Transfer students” refer to those who have completed 30+ hours of college credit at another institution. College credit hours completed prior to high school graduation, including Early College Program courses, do not affect scholarship eligibility. 

Additional Information

Recipients receive $2,000 ($1,000 per semester) for fall and spring semesters of enrollment. To receive the full value, recipients must be enrolled full-time (12 credit hours) with MSU. Students receiving outside scholarships, including KEES funds, and financial aid may not receive more aid than total cost of attendance.

Criteria for renewal: Maintain a minimum cumulative MSU GPA of 3.0, consecutive full-time enrollment with MSU for fall and spring semesters, and satisfy the University's housing policy.

This scholarship cannot be awarded in addition to another academic achievement scholarship.
