MSUM offers a variety of Counseling & Student Affairs scholarships for current and incoming students. Scholarships are listed below. Students can also apply for general university scholarships through the Office of Scholarship & Financial Aid.
The Counseling and Student Affairs (CNSA) Program offers two $500 scholarships each fall semester. Scholarships will be awarded during the annual CNSA Alumni Social to be used for the spring semester.
Graduate students who have been accepted into the CNSA program and have completed one semester in the program will be eligible to apply for the scholarship.
