National TRIO Day

This campaign ended on May 11, 2019, but you can still make a gift to Missouri State University by clicking here!

TRIO students are (or will be) first in their families to go to college, are from low-income backgrounds, have documented disabilities, or are military veterans. Missouri State University has two programs; Upward Bound and Student Support Services (SSS). 

-Upward Bound serves high school students from Hillcrest, Parkview, and Central High Schools. Students are exposed to pre-college access curricula to prepare for the college application process, understanding financial aid, preparation for exams, tutoring, college and career exploration.

-SSS helps current MSU students with individual tutoring, intrusive 1-on-1 advising, graduate school preparation, cultural events, and career readiness. 

This giving campaign is to support these active participants in their quest for educational attainment. There are financial situations that arise for TRIO students, and they often have nowhere to turn. Every dollar given in this campaign is reserved for students in need with scholarships starting at $50 minimum.

If you have questions, please reach out to Dr. Rabekah Stewart, Executive Director for TRIO Programs.

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

Visit MSU Alumni Association for additional information how to become engaged with the association and what events are coming to your area.
