Descriptions of COE Scholarships

The college scholarship committee will review applications for scholarship awards for the 2017 - 2018 academic year in March 2017. Scholarship recipients will be notified if they have received an award in April 2017.

Eligibility for need-based scholarships is determined by the MSU financial aid office, consequently students who wish to be considered for need-based scholarships MUST complete the FAFSA student aid application.  Need-based scholarships will not be awarded to students who have not completed the FAFSA application.
