Award Amount

$5,000 annually. Non-Missouri residents will also receive a full waiver of non-resident fees. The scholarship is renewable for three additional years if the recipient maintains a grade point average of 3.5 or higher and completes 30 or more credit hours each academic year. To renew for the fourth year, the recipient must have completed an average of 40 hours of community or campus service each year during his/her first three years. Recipients also have access to a $500 voucher to apply toward an MSU-approved study away program.


It is MSU's intent to award this scholarship to all qualified students who apply by the deadline; however, MSU reserves the right to limit the number of scholarships based on availability of funding. For this reason, students are encouraged to apply for admission early.

Additional Information

Eligible students will be identified based on their admission application credentials. In determining eligibility, MSU will use the student's class rank, high school grade point average, and ACT or SAT scores when he/she is first admitted. If the student improves on one or more of these indicators by the deadline for a scholarship, his/her scholarship will be upgraded. Students must meet all admission requirements. Students approved for admission as exceptions to the high school core curriculum requirement may not receive scholarships unless approved by the MSU Scholarship Committee. All scholarships can be combined with privately funded scholarships and Bright Flight scholarships.
