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 April 2nd by 5:00 p.m. EST, decisions will be made and applicants notified on or before April 14th by 5:00 p.m. EST, and funds distributed for the upcoming academic year.
