Morehead State University announces new Eagle Assurance Scholarship

For more than 130 years, Morehead State University has been known for providing access to a quality, affordable higher education to those in Kentucky and beyond. The Eagle Assurance Scholarship will make that same quality education even more affordable for those with the greatest financial need.    

As part of MSU’s ongoing Commitment to Commonwealth, the Eagle Assurance Scholarship has been formalized to help students who receive federal and state grant assistance and institutional scholarships to pay for a part of their remaining tuition and mandatory fees.  
"At Morehead State University, we are proud to remain committed to retaining our long-held status as one of the most affordable universities in Kentucky," said President Jay Morgan. "The Eagle Assurance Scholarship is intended to help students in greatest financial need make up the gap that may exist after all other forms of aid have been applied. We will continue to evaluate strategies and to look for ways to make higher education as affordable as possible to as many students as possible at our University."  
This is a financial need-based scholarship for 2021 graduates of Kentucky high schools who meet these criteria:  
  • Are Pell Grant eligible (per the FAFSA).
  •  Enrolling as first-time, full-time student.
  •  Have a minimum high school GPA of 2.8 (4.0 scale).
