The 4th annual Founders Scholarship Gala is Friday, Feb. 17 in the Comstock Memorial Union ballroom. Please join in this celebration and support the Founders Scholarship. The evening will include dinner, drinks, a silent auction, a mystery wine table and a live band.

All faculty and staff are invited to attend the Gala for the reduced ticket price of $35, which covers the cost of the event. If you wish to pay the full ticket price of $75, your tax-deductible $40 donation will help support the Founders Scholarship.

The Founders Scholarship is named in recognition of the people who founded our University. They created an educational opportunity that has enriched lives since 1888. Long ago our students were affectionately known as “scramblers,” because they came from modest means, worked hard, and left with a brighter future. Thanks to the founders, our heritage is comprised of success, service, and citizenship.

The Founders Scholarship is a competitive $2,500 need-based scholarship awarded to students who embody these exemplary characteristics. The scholarship is named in recognition of MSUM Founders and funded by specific gifts and proceeds of the annual Founders Ball, which first occurred in conjunction with President Edna Mora Szymanski’s inauguration as the 10th President of MSUM in February 2009.
