Scholarships

Each year, MSSA sponsors $4,500 in scholarships for students in human service related degree seeking programs in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, North Dakota, and South Dakota. Two MSSA John Moline Scholarships are given in the amount of $1,000 each to an undergraduate student enrolled in a human service-related program. The MSSA Diversity Scholarship is given in the amount of $1,000 to a student who is from a diverse background enrolled in a undergraduate human service program. The Graduate Scholarship is given in the amount of $1,500 to a graduate student enrolled in a health and human service-related program.

MSSA encourages all students in human service-related degree seeking programs in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, North Dakota, or South Dakota to apply.

Thanks to a generous donation from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota, MSSA will be restructuring its scholarship program to benefit more students. The new process will be enacted in late 2019. Stay tuned for more details.


We are no longer accepting applications for Fall 2019. Students who submitted their applications at the most recent deadline will be contacted in mid-August.
