Some scholarships have restrictions and/or requirements. These are clearly stated in the description of the scholarship online.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

 

Seniors:  Each year MSU awards millions of dollars in scholarships to help provide a quality and affordable education. We are excited to announce that this year’s non-resident scholarship applications are OPEN!

Our non-resident Achievement Awards are automatic scholarships that will be awarded to students who apply for admission and submit their self-reported GPA on their application. These awards will range up to $10,000 per year/renewable for 4 years! Achievement Award consideration will begin in the next couple of weeks and will continue throughout the 2021-2022 academic year.

  • MSU is excited to announce the return of our Blue & Gold Scholarship Application which is now open! This application will give students an opportunity to apply for additional scholarship funding in addition to their Achievement Award. We encourage students to apply early for full consideration!
  • MSU will be offering a very limited number of Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) scholarships to new freshmen enrolling in the fall of 2022. Students from eligible WUE states that submit the Blue & Gold Scholarship Application will automatically be considered for WUE. The deadline for WUE scholarship consideration is January 1st, 2022. Due to the high value of WUE and the volume of applications, the scholarship is limited and extremely competitive. We encourage students to apply early. Students will be notified in mid-February if they have been awarded WUE.

MSU does NOT require test scores to be considered for admissions or scholarships, but if students take an ACT or SAT, we encourage them to have their official scores sent directly from the testing agency. Test scores may be used for placement into their math and English classes. Students can send their scores using MSU school codes:

If students have more questions about scholarship and financial aid, we encourage them to check out our recorded Paying for School Webinar that was hosted in October. This presentation covers merit-based aid, need-based aid, resources to help make college affordable, and more.

 

Seniors: Morgen Patrick would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to the Education Opportunity Center (EOC).  The EOC is a Department of Education–funded TRIO program which is sponsored by the University of Wyoming.  Their goal is to offer free assistance to high school students and adults seeking post-secondary education. Morgen will be meeting with your senior, at his/her school, in the coming months to review the college admissions and selection process as well as scholarships and financial aid. For more information, stop by the counseling office and pick up a packet or download the application at https://botform.compansol.com/201665836453056 .
