Alumni Heritage Scholarship

Through its scholarship program, the Southwest Minnesota State University Alumni Association recognizes high school seniors and transfer students for their academic and leadership achievements. The evaluation criterion focuses on well-roundedness. The evaluation committee holds all of the following elements in equal value: GPA, ACT or SAT scores, extra-curricular activities, community and volunteer activities, honors and achievements, and a letter of recommendation.  You will also be scored on your response to the essay questions.

The SMSU Alumni Association will award up to 10 scholarships for the academic year. These scholarships are worth $500.00 for the first year at SMSU.
