Privately Funded Awards
The Mississippi State University Foundation oversees nearly 1,600 privately-funded scholarships housed in our various academic colleges and departments. You can maximize your consideration for these awards by completing your general scholarship application, as well as any applications recommended to you within our online scholarship portal found in your MyState portal.
Many of our Alumni Association's local chapters provide scholarships to students from their local communities. These chapter scholarships are awarded to select students to receive one-year awards based on outstanding leadership and academic records.
