For more than 125 years, Minnesota State University Moorhead has impacted the lives of students, helping make our community, region and world a better place. The
founders of MSU Moorhead believed in success, service and citizenship. Today these same values are embodied in the recipients of the Founders Scholarship, named in recognition of the founders of MSUM.
Since 2009, fifty scholarships totaling nearly $120,000 have been funded by the annual Founders Scholarship Gala. Please join us for the 7th Annual Founders Scholarship Gala, as we celebrate these scholarship students and raise funds to continue providing scholarship support to students who are passionately pursuing their dreams.

The Founders Scholarship is 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 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 Gala, which first occurred in February 2009.
