This year we are doubly blessed ...
honestly, triply blessed.

An anonymous donor is willing to match dollar-for-dollar every donation that comes in for the annual Academic Scholarship Drive, up to a total of $20,000! By hitting that mark, 20k becomes 40k. The MSU Foundation will then apply for North Dakota Challenge Grant matching on the $40,000 raised, and by doing so, get another 50 center on the dollar. The 40k generates 20k in matching, and we have a total of $60,000, or triple the initial $20,000 donated. That is gratitude times three.

As the holidays draw near, our hearts are filled with gratitude for the many gifts with which we have been blessed. One of those precious gifts for countless alumni and friends is Mayville State University. For 132 years, the university has provided experiences that have made lives better.

Will you consider paying your gratitude for Mayville State forward so that a deserving student might enjoy the benefits of a Mayville State education?

Scholarship assistance truly makes a difference for students who are becoming the leaders of tomorrow. The opportunity to earn scholarships weighs heavily into a student’s decision to attend Mayville State. While our costs are very affordable, a scholarship makes our university even more appealing and may mean the difference in whether a student chooses to attend Mayville State, or whether to attend college at all. Your gift will help to relieve the financial stress that can go with earning a college degree and may be the very thing that makes it possible for a deserving person to earn a college degree.

Please consider what Mayville State has meant in your own life and make a gift to the scholarship fund that will help to ensure that others will benefit in the same way you have. In addition to the $20,000 dollar-for-dollar match challenge issued by a generous anonymous donor, North Dakota Challenge Grant matching funds are available. Through this grant, the State of North Dakota will match your gift at a rate of 50%. Your gift has the potential to make an even greater impact!

The thankfulness flows in both directions.

We at Mayville state could not be more grateful for the generosity of our alumni and friends. Your support is key to making great things happen at the university and in the lives of individuals. From the bottoms of our hearts, we say “thank you” for your past and future support. You are changing lives.

“I graduated from high school in Drayton, N.D. with a class of eleven. At Mayville State, I am pursuing a major in Biology with a specialization in Health

Careers and minors in Chemistry and Business. After graduating from Mayville, I plan to pursue a career in optometry.

“On campus, I am a member of the intercollegiate softball team, Science Club, and the Student Athlete Advisory Council. I also serve as state president of North Dakota Collegiate DECA and vice president for the Mayville State University Collegiate DECA chapter. My work on campus includes selling tickets at athletic events and working in a research lab within the biology department.

“This is my fourth year of attendance at Mayville State University. Mayville State’s close-knit campus reminds me of my hometown. The small-town feel is one of the most prominent deciding factors that helped me choose to continue my education at Mayville State. Without the help of generous scholarship support from Mayville State alumni and friends, pursuing post-secondary education would not be nearly as attainable. Thank you for these opportunities!”

Taylor Stegman, Drayton, N.D.
2021-22 recipient of the Agnes Geelan Scholarship and the Wymore Family Scholarship
