You can designate your gift to the Graduate Student Research Award, which will support outstanding students who are conducting cutting-edge research, or you can choose for your gift to go to the Graduate College General Fund which will go to the area of greatest need first.

*In addition, MSU alumni who make a qualifying gift of $50 or more receive a V.I.B.card - Very Important Bear

#BearsGive - Recap To Date

We've been inspired by the generosity of the Missouri State community during #BearsGive! Nearly 1,400 alumni and friends have made a gift to show their support for MSU.

There is still work to be done to hit our goal of 1,905 donors. A gift, of any amount, can help get us closer to our goal. 

Make your gift now to support students on campus today, and those who will be here tomorrow. Go Bears!

There's still time to use matching and challenge gifts to double your impact! There are matches to almost anywhere you can think of. One example is; Cat Shoults is matching gifts for the Dr. Tom Tomasi Biology Summer Research Award in honor of Dr. Tomasi. The two are pictured together below.
