DISCOVER SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITIES
HOW TO GET STARTED
Types of scholarships
Investing in yourself begins with education. As you explore your options, here are three things to know:
- Scholarships come from multiple sources and do not have to be repaid.
- You can earn scholarships based on your grades (GPA), leadership and involvement, and/or financial need.
- Some scholarships require an application; other scholarships you’ll automatically qualify for when you apply and are admitted to MSU.
You can apply for many scholarships offered through MSU. View scholarships based on your student status.
MSU donor funded
Friends of Missouri State – alumni, groups and companies – donate scholarship funds each year.
Many organizations outside the university provide scholarships each year. Examples of scholarship search sites:
