Thanks to our donors and alumni, MSU offers a variety of scholarships. The MSU Foundation awarded over 600 scholarships totaling nearly $1 million in 2021-22.


Navigating the Financial Aid Process

Financial aid helps students and their families pay for educational expenses. It can be need- or merit-based. It can include loans you pay back, grants or scholarships that don’t require repayment, and even student jobs.
