Chapter Scholarships

Alumni chapters from around the world help make a difference at Mississippi State by providing financial assistance for students. Annual and endowed scholarships play a significant role in helping exceptional students attend MSU.

Chapter scholarships are made possible by donations to the MSU Foundation, unless otherwise indicated, and are considered privately funded scholarships. Gifts of any amount from individual donors may be designated to a specific chapter's endowed or annual scholarship fund. To make a gift to a chapter scholarship, go to the MSU Foundation website and click ‘Give Now’ and proceed with your gift. Remember to enter the chapter name of your choice (from the list below) in the “Other” designation.

For more information on giving to chapter scholarships or establishing a chapter scholarship, please contact Leanna Smith at or telephone 662.325.4214.

• His/Her primary address (or high school) is in a chapter area;
