MSU Raises $11M for Student Scholarships

Leeann Akers

Morehead State began the public phase of its “Soar to New Heights” Scholarship Campaign, which addresses the University’s priorities of recruitment, retention and degree completion.

The goal is to raise $15 million in three years. Already the campaign has raised $23 million, with more than $11 million to fund scholarships.

Mindy Highley is the Assistant Vice President for Alumni Relations & Development at MSU. She says the pandemic has made fundraising difficult, but the university has adapted.

As of June 30th, the campaign gathered over $1 million in annual scholarships, over $9 million in endowed scholarships, and 76 new scholarship funds have been created.
