Partnership builds opportunities for students.
An innovative partnership between Wyman and Missouri State University provides first-generation college students from economically disadvantaged circumstances the skills, confidence, tenacity and support to earn higher grade point averages and to secure degrees at rates exceeding national averages.
Wyman offers a limited number of scholarship packages to Missouri State University through a partnership between Wyman and MSU. MSU provides a package for students by combining university scholarships, grants, work study, and a $5,000 Wyman contribution to cover the cost of tuition, room, and board. The Wyman/MSU Scholarship is designed to allow students to graduate with a bachelor’s degree with minimal to no debt.
Wyman and MSU celebrated the 10th anniversary of their partnership Thursday by honoring the students, and recognizing the staff, investors and cross-institutional efforts that have supported their strong outcomes. The celebration was held on the university’s campus in Springfield.
