The scholarship application process for 2018-2019 opened on  November 1, 2017. Cat $cholarships is a new MSU online scholarship platform from AcademicWorks that will be used for collecting scholarship applications. The priority deadline for applications was Feb. 1, 2018. The process is now 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  current MSU students will be able to use Cat $cholarships online applications.

Incoming freshmen and transfer students, please use these links to fill out applications and submit electronically. You also need to submit a current transcript, including fall 2017. Please submit that to with your" first and last name" and "transcripts" in the SUBJECT LINE.

Deadline for submission is Feb. 15, 2018. The application process is now closed.



The application process  for current MSU students  is now closed for 2018-2019. Thank you to all who applied. 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 AcademicWorks Cat $cholarship system. 


Please check with the EHHD Scholarship Coordinator in Reid 249 for information about several other scholarships offered by organizations outside the College, such as the Big Sky Retired Educators Association Scholarship and Jane Hammer Holmgren Scholarship for education students.
