Missouri State University is reaching out to former students who might want to return to finish their degree.
MSU announced the “Return to Finish” scholarship with the goal of having students who are within a year of their degree return to complete their coursework.
“Life circumstances often creep up on students and interfere with the completion of a degree program,” Provost Frank Einhellig said in a statement. “But the goal to finish lives on and is attainable. Finishing one’s degree program is a foundation to opening new doors of opportunity, so we want to give students a boost toward their goals.”
The scholarship offers $200 to students enrolling for 2-5 credit hours, and $500 for those enrolling in 6 or more credit hours.
Students can qualify for the scholarship if they:
- Completed 90+ undergraduate credit hours.
- Have a 2.0 or higher cumulative GPA.
- Owe less than $1,000 to Missouri State.
- Have been out of school for more than one year (last enrolled in spring 2019 or earlier).
There is also a parallel scholarship for graduate students who were stopped short of graduation.
