Scholarships Make A Difference
MSP’s scholarship funds attract students from economically and ethnically diverse backgrounds, recognize academic excellence, and provide financial assistance in times of need.
Your donation to MSP’s scholarship fund helps ease financial burdens for students. Scholarships are privately funded by MSP’s alumni and friends, and directly touch students’ lives. A donation to the general scholarship fund ensures that all scholarships are funded and disbursed to each individual scholarship fund as needed.
MSP’s scholarships are rooted in the values we exemplify as an institution.
