Hello Bear Family!
Free money is at your students’ fingertips. How does an average of $1,100 sound? This is possible through our General and Departmental Scholarship! Thanks to our wonderful donors and the Missouri State Foundation, we have nearly $2,250,000 available through nearly 1,000 scholarships to all current students!
To get one of these scholarships, all your student needs to do is fill out an application! To begin the application, your student must first go to the Profile tab on their MyMissouriState account. Second, scroll down to the Financial Aid section and click General and Departmental Scholarship Application. Next, your student must select the application that corresponds to their academic year/status. Finally, complete the application Most of the questions are Yes/No, Select from a List, and Short Answer, so it is a very simple process! Additionally, your student does not need to do every single section. They only have to do what is applicable to them or what they want to complete. They can do as little or as much as they want to do! Completing a section will automatically put your student as a candidate for each one they complete once they submit it!
This may take some time for your student to complete, but this is a small investment of time to make that can yield great benefits. Your student has an excellent chance of receiving at least one scholarship! According to our Financial Aid office, last academic year 1 in 4 students who applied received scholarships with an average amount of $1,100. Any amount they receive will be granted to the 2017-2018 academic year. That can make a huge difference for you and your student. Tell them to apply for the General and Departmental Scholarship! The application closes this coming Wednesday, March 1st at 11:59 PM so they should not delay!
