At MSU we offer a variety of institutional, foundation-funded, and departmental scholarships. Our merit-based institutional scholarship program encourages some of the best and brightest students to become Eagles. Students are automatically considered for institutional scholarships based on their admissions application. Our MSU Foundation awards nearly 600 annual student scholarships, valued at approximately $800,000. These are made possible through generous donations of MSU donors and alumni. Students can apply for MSU Foundation scholarships by using the online scholarship application below.
