Scholarships

  • MSU Moorhead delivers a quality education at a cost that is affordable for you and your family. MSUM typically awards more than $3.36 million in student scholarships each year based on academic achievement, exceptional talent and financial need.

    Automatic scholarships are easy — just apply and be admitted. A separate application is not required. New first-year students who are admitted and meet academic qualification are awarded automatic scholarships on a first-applied, first-awarded basis until funds are fully committed. Students must meet minimum admission standards for consideration. Scholarship awarding is determined by the official composite ACT score, high school GPA and class rank reported at the time of application. Apply early to be considered for one of the freshman or transfer automatic scholarships.

    Please select one or more criteria to narrow your search. Clicking "search" without selecting any options will return all records in alphabetical order. Students will fill out and submit only one application to be considered for all scholarships listed within the category/department.  (i.e., Upper Class will require only one application; department scholarships will usually require only one application for each department.) When searching for scholarships, remember that you are applying for the next academic year. Keep that in mind when you are selecting your year in school.
