Scholarships and Financial Aid

Helping you achieve excellence

The department of history at Missouri State offers its students numerous scholarship opportunities to help cover the cost of tuition and other education-related expenses. To apply for scholarships offered by the department of history, you must complete the MSU Annual Scholarship Application preferably by March 1. If a scholarship requires proof of financial need, you need to complete the Federal Application for Financial Aid (FAFSA) by February 15.

Typically, recipients of the awards will be notified prior to the end of the spring semester. Therefore, your scholarship will apply to the following academic year. As a scholarship recipient, you are asked to write a thank-you letter to the scholarship committee that selected you for the award.

You may also qualify for scholarships offered by the Reynolds College of Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities and the office of financial aid.


MSU Foundation Scholarships

MSU Foundation Scholarships are made possible through private gifts to the University made by individuals, groups or companies. They are awarded to students each year based on a wide range of criteria: college, major/minor, high school attended, outstanding academic achievement, leadership, financial need, etc.

The Search Tool will allow you to view available scholarships. You may search using keywords or the category search filter option, however you cannot apply for scholarships using the Search Tool.
