Michigan State University Alumni Association of Saginaw County Scholarship

The Michigan State University Alumni Club of Saginaw County was established in the early 1960s and is associated with the National Michigan State University Alumni Association. From the beginning, the MSU Alumni Club of Saginaw County has had the following mission:

The MSU Alumni Club of Saginaw County, Michigan, shall act as an agency for the dissemination of information regarding the educational advantages of Michigan State University, support the activities of Michigan State University toward the realization of its educational program, in every way possible, including scholarships, and unite, for social purposes, those persons who are interested in the distinguished record and future enhancement of Michigan State University.

The Scholarship Fund itself has been awarding scholarships to MSU students from Saginaw County for over 20 years. Our scholarship recipients have gone on to notable careers in business, engineering, medicine, education, finance, law, social service, public service, manufacturing and a variety of other careers – all of which were “jump started” in part through the scholarship they received from the MSU Alumni Club of Saginaw County. Our proudest moments are when our scholarship recipients return to Saginaw County to work and live and, subsequently, join us as members of the MSU Alumni Club of Saginaw County to help in perpetuating the mission of our Club.
