Mississippi State FarmHouse Fraternity – Scholarship Opportunity for Fall of 2018 Freshman

Good Morning!

FarmHouse Fraternity at Mississippi State is offering multiple scholarships up to $1,000 each for the fall semester of 2018.  Qualified candidates must be classified by Mississippi State as a freshman.  These are unrestricted cash scholarships awarded directly to the recipient for any purpose the student may choose, payable in early August.  One does not have to be affiliated with the fraternity in any capacity to be eligible for the scholarship.  A personal on campus interview with all finalists is a part of the final selection process which will be scheduled for maximum convenience for each finalist.  The ideal time for the interview would be in the same time frame as freshmen orientations.

I have attached a pdf file which includes both the instructions and the application form which are self explanatory.  Questions about the scholarships should be addressed by email to the scholarship chairman at msstatefh.scholarship@gmail.com.  Applications with incomplete information will not be considered.

FarmHouse has been a part of Mississippi State since 1964.  Its name reflects its agricultural roots but its members are from all fields of study.

All information provided by the applicants will be treated as confidential, will not be provided to any person or entity other than the selection committee, and will be permanently deleted following the awarding of the scholarships.

Please share with any of your students who are planning to attend Mississippi State in the Fall!
