Newly Admitted Freshmen
Newly admitted freshmen should apply for scholarships through their myState account. Entering business majors that apply by MSU's priority deadline will receive full consideration for business scholarships. Any business scholarships awarded will be included in scholarship letters sent out by MSU each spring.
The Adkerson School of Accountancy and the College of Business offer scholarships to current students. The scholarships are awarded based on academic performance, involvement in extracurricular activities, and evidence of leadership.
The Adkerson School of Accountancy and the College of Business offer assistantships to entering graduate students who have demonstrated a high level of academic success. Graduate assistants work 20 hours per week under the direction of a faculty member. During any week, a graduate may assist in research projects, grade course homework, and assist students in help sessions.
To obtain an assistantship, you must either be admitted or be in the process of being admitted full-time to one of our graduate programs (unclassified and/or part-time students cannot hold assistantships). Graduate students with assistantships receive a tuition exemption (fees not included) and a monthly stipend.
