As college expenses continue to rise, Missouri State University donors are generously providing a combined total of more than 1.3 million dollars in scholarships to students for the 2013-2014 academic year.
Students can simultaneously apply for all of the scholarships offered in just a few easy steps by using the Missouri State University Foundation’s online Scholarship Manager. This tool allows students to view all available awards and apply for more than 1,000 scholarships with a single application.
Approximately one in four Missouri State students will receive a scholarship, ranging from a few hundred dollars to $15,000, so all encouraged to apply. The application for 2013-2014 scholarships is now available 2012 and will close on March 1, 2013.
To access the application, students should log in to My.MissouriState.edu, select the Profile Tab and find the Financial Aid Channel Box. Then, choose the General and Departmental Scholarship Application. This will automatically connect students with the Scholarship Manager. There are three different applications–Incoming Freshman, Current Undergraduate and Graduate Student–and students should select their student type as of the beginning of the 2013-2014 academic year.
Scholarship recipients are selected by campus-wide committees for the following academic year between March and May, with a few being selected during the summer months.
