More than 50,000 students attend Michigan State University annually with a portion of them coming from families with household incomes of less than $125,000. Family financial resources, paired with declining state support for higher education, make scholarships essential for many MSU students.
If you have a student interested in learning more on how they can obtain a scholarship, please visit the scholarships page on the Office of Admissions website.
There is a large variety of scholarships available each year with many pertaining to specific interests or fields of study.
Our MSU alumni communities worldwide also offer financial assistance to students attending MSU from their regions. To invest in an alumni community scholarship, contact an alumni club in your region of interest.
After inflation, the cost of higher education at Michigan public universities increased by $217 (1.8 percent) per student over 12 years. At MSU, that increase was only $65. As this chart prepared by the House Fiscal Agency clearly shows, the increased cost of higher education has been driven almost entirely by the decreased state funding.
Your gifts to support scholarships help deserving MSU students get a world-class education.
