The scholarship program of Middle Georgia State University Foundation, Inc. is made possible by private contributions from alumni, faculty and staff, corporations,
businesses, foundations and friends of Middle Georgia State University. Thanks to the generosity of these donors, the Foundation awards thousands of dollars to deserving students each year.
