This scholarship has a value of $5,000, payable at $2,500 per semester during the academic year (fall and spring semesters). The scholarship is not applicable to summer enrollment. The scholarship is renewable for three years beyond the first year (four years total) and thus has a total potential value of $20,000. This scholarship is awarded to international students (non-Missouri residents for fee purposes) entering Missouri State as first-time college students. To qualify, students must have an ACT composite of 24 or higher (or SAT of 1180*) in addition to a strong academic record in high school (secondary school). Additionally, students must enroll at Missouri State as regular, degree-seeking students on the Springfield Campus within 24 months of completion of high school or the equivalent in their country and must have qualifying test scores on file prior to the first semester of regular enrollment. Participation in an English language training program does not qualify as regular enrollment but also does not prevent students from receiving the scholarship if they are otherwise qualified.
