The Morehead State University Foundation offers nearly 400 scholarship opportunities, thanks to generous alumni and donors who care deeply about Morehead State University and its students. Many MSU Foundation scholarships are based on academic credentials such as major, GPA, academic classification, or other criteria such as high school, county, or state.

Many students are selected to receive MSU Foundation scholarship awards by committees from departments and colleges, while others are selected by staff from the Office of Financial Aid and the MSU Foundation. Students are encouraged to apply for MSU Foundation scholarships each year as their eligibility may vary based on their academic classification. Additionally, new scholarships are added each year thanks to the generosity of our donors.

The application for Foundation scholarships opens on January 1 each year for the upcoming academic school year beginning in August. Students are encouraged to apply by the priority deadline of March 15. However, application deadlines vary by scholarship. The final date to apply is June 15.

The MSU Foundation provides several scholarships based on area of study, financial need, achievement, student organizations, and more.

The application for 2024-25 scholarships will open on January 1, 2024.


After You Apply

It takes several weeks for scholarship reviewers to evaluate all of the applications. All applicants will be notified via email whether or not they have received a scholarship.

If students are selected for a scholarship, they must accept or decline the scholarship offer within the scholarship portal. Foundation scholarships require students to submit a letter of appreciation. Scholarship funds will not be applied to student financial aid accounts until the letter of appreciation is received. The recipient will receive an email outlining the letter of appreciation submission process. The MSU Foundation will share the letter of appreciation with the scholarship donor.
