Because MSU's College of Engineering has very supportive donors, we are able to award substantial amounts of scholarship money, about $800,000 each year. We also encourage students to apply for scholarships through other MSU scholarship programs (see "Scholarship links" below). 

Eligibility for need-based scholarships is determined by the MSU financial aid office, and 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 (see "Scholarship link" below).
