International Programs Undergraduate Scholarships

All international undergraduate applicants will automatically be considered for new student scholarships valued at up to US$3,500*. These scholarships are available to qualified international students, freshmen or transfer, applying to begin their studies either fall or spring semester. Documents required in the international undergraduate application will determine eligibility, and no separate scholarship application is required.

Selection is based on previous academic achievement, test scores, potential for success at MSU, and overall fit with the institution and its academic programs. SAT exam score results are not required to compete for these scholarships. Scholarships will be available until all are awarded; therefore, students are encouraged to submit their MSU application early.

These scholarships are available to students during their first year of study at MSU and are renewable on a competitive basis, depending on availability of funds.  To renew, the student must maintain a 3.0 (B) average, demonstrate involvement and contributions to the campus or the community, and apply by the stated deadline each semester. 

*This amount may change if the student is awarded other scholarships from MSU that add up to more than $3,500.
