The scholarship application process for 2019-2020 will open on  November 1, 2018. Cat $cholarships is the MSU online scholarship platform  that will be used for collecting scholarship applications. The priority deadline for applications will be Feb. 1, 2019. The process is currently closed.

We highly recommend that you file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) now to be eligible for all scholarships. MSU's priority deadline for FAFSA is December 1; however, you can apply anytime. Many of our scholarships are based on financial need, so it's always a good idea to have a FAFSA on file with the Office of Financial Aid, even if you think you won't qualify for financial aid.

Only  accepted MSU students will be able to use Cat $cholarships online applications.

The application process  for current MSU students  is currently closed for 2019-2020.  You will hear if you got a scholarship by the end of April. This announcement will be delivered to you in an email from the  Cat $cholarship System.
