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 Founders Scholarship is a competitive $2,500 need-based scholarship awarded once to students who embody these exemplary characteristics. 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.
Students eligible to apply:
Scholarship continuation: A 3.0 cumulative MSUM GPA at the end of fall 2013 semester is required to retain scholarship eligibility spring 2013 semester.
