Pre-College Achievement Scholarships

Pre-College Achievement Scholarships (PAS) are awarded each year to a maximum of sixty 8th-10th graders who have attended a pre-college program at MSU. Awards are $2,000 each and students are only eligible to apply once to win. To be eligible, students must be entering 8th, 9th, or 10th grade in the fall. The scholarship will be applied towards the student’s first year at MSU as a degree-seeking student. Scholarship recipients are not guaranteed admission to MSU and are expected to meet admission requirements following their junior year of high school.
