Named in recognition of the people who founded our University. They created an educational opportunity that has enriched lives since 1888. Long ago our students were affectionately known as "scramblers," because they came from modest means, worked hard, and left with a brighter future. Thanks to the founders, our heritage is comprised of success, service, and citizenship.

The scholarship is named in recognition of MSUM Founders and funded by specific gifts and proceeds of the annual Founders Ball, which first occurred in conjunction with President Edna Mora Szymanski's inauguration as the 10th President of MSUM in February 2009.
