Gifts to Annual Scholarships help ensure a quality education for students who might otherwise be unable to afford to attend the university.

Each dollar given to Annual Scholarships makes a difference, and gifts of any amount are appreciated. You can even double or triple the impact of your gift to this important fund if you or your spouse work for or are retired from a matching gift company. Check with your company’s personnel office to be sure.

A good investment

Thanks to the support of donors like you, MU students are given these opportunities for Performance Learning and more:

  • Biology students gained practical experience in veterinary research at the Illinois Raptor Center.
  • Information Systems students developed a database application for BRE Law, a local law firm.
  • Student-run businesses like Blue Connection, Blue Satellite Press, Carriage House Press and First Step Records provide opportunities for students to contribute to the local economy and emphasized the value of entrepreneurship within the arts.

Your gift matters
