Inclusive Excellence Scholarship Application

Application process

The scholarship application for the Inclusive Excellence Scholarship consists of two parts:

  1. Your address, contact and academic information, as well as a list of organizations and activities you have participated in and awards and honors received.
  2. One essay.

You should also make sure that you have submitted an admission application, a high school transcript, your highest ACT or SAT score (if needed for admission purposes), and any other items requested for admission to the Missouri State office of admissions by the January 30 deadline. As long as the university has a transcript on file, it is not necessary to include a duplicate with the application for the scholarship.

Applicants must be admitted to Missouri State University at the time the Scholarship Committee begins reviewing applications. The review process begins within one week of the January 30th deadline.
