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 lsmith@advservices.msstate.edu or telephone 662.325.4214.

To be eligible for a chapter scholarship:

  • Students must be admitted to the university AND complete the General Scholarship Application through their myState account.
  • Most chapter scholarships are considered an ‘auto-match’ scholarship in our scholarship system, with the exception of a few (see below). Students will be auto-matched to their respective chapter scholarship IF they meet the requirements. Once the student completes the General Scholarship Application, no further steps are required.
  • Chapter scholarships that require additional application steps include:
    • Atlanta, GA Chapter Scholarship,
    • Chickasaw County Alumni Chapter Scholarship
