Parent Fund

Parent Find Scholarship Recipients


In 2004, a group of dedicated parents created the Parent Fund Scholarship Endowment. The MSU Parent Fund provides scholarships to undergraduate and graduate students. The scholarship endowment now totals more than $150,000. Parent Fund scholarship applications are accepted until November 1st each Fall.

Thanks to generous donors we are able to give 10 scholarships each spring, so you can apply as an undergraduate and as a graduate student if you meet the qualifications.


  • Full time student
  • 2.5 cumulative GPA or higher

This scholarship is decided by a committee that takes into account academic background, financial need as well as clarity of the two responses. Scholarship recipients must reapply in order to be considered in subsequent years.

I hope you will be part of the Parent Fund as it expands the educational opportunities for students.  The goal is to continue to build the scholarship and offer additional scholarship in the future.  With your help, more students will receive financial assistance.  


Thank you to the parents that make this scholarship possible!
