Lowndes County Chapter Scholarship

Applications for university scholarships are available through the student application for admission after receiving admittance to MSU.  Students who complete the general scholarship information after admittance to Mississippi State will automatically be considered if the required criteria are met.

The University Scholarship Committee administers the scholarship program at Mississippi State University. Financial need may be used as consideration in selection. Any scholarships will be awarded on a year-to-year basis.

Awards will be based on funds available. Funds will not be given directly to the recipients; rather, the university business office will credit the recipients' tuition and fees expenses each semester.

Chapter Membership Information

If you’re an alumnus or friend of MSU who lives in Lowndes County (based on your mailing address with the Alumni Association), you’re automatically a member of this chapter. An annual donation to Mississippi State made through the MSU Foundation makes you an active member of the MSU Alumni Association and the Lowndes County Chapter.

Supporting the Chapter

Financial Support of individuals and businesses is also important to the success of the Lowndes County Chapter. There are two ways to support through the MSU Foundation.

Chapter Scholarship
The Lowndes County Alumni Chapter has established a scholarship fund to be awarded to entering freshmen from Lowndes County. Help us grow this fund by making a tax-deductible donation, in any amount. Utilize secure online giving by visiting the MSU Foundation giving website.

Advancement Fund
The Lowndes County Chapter Advancement Fund supports the chapter's goals and initiatives. Gifts to this fund help pay for activities and events hosted by the chapter, which ultimately supports the chapter scholarship.
