    7th Annual Gala raises more than $70,000

    On February 20, 2015, the MSUM Alumni Foundation hosted the 7th Annual Founders Scholarship Gala. The event, held in the CMU Ballroom, hosted nearly 300 alumni, faculty, staff, students, parents, donors, and friends. The evening of dining and dancing also featured three scholarship students who shared their personal story of how the Founders Scholarship has enhanced their education at MSU Moorhead. Thank you to all who supported the event and the students. If you missed the event, you can view the pictures or the student video.

    History of the Founders Scholarship

    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.
