Academic Scholarship Application

Each year, through the generosity of several key donors HDFS is able to provide funds to support undergraduate education.  These undergraduate scholarships strive to support a variety of students: rewarding high achieving students, those starting their collegiate career, those advancing through their undergraduate education, and those who demonstrate financial need. Applicants must be current students enrolled at Michigan State University with their primary major in the department of Human Development and Family Studies.  Completed applications are due by March 29th by 5PM EST, decisions will be made and applicants notified by April 8th by 5PM EST, and funds distributed for the upcoming academic year.
