MPSSAA Scholarship Recipients Since 2008
After the application deadline, the applications are divided according to the MPSSAA District of each submission. They are then forwarded to the Scholar-Athlete Committee representative from the nine respective districts. Each District convenes a selection committee to review the applications.
Each District representative attends the Selection Committee meeting in early May to present their District’s top two male and female candidates, along with transcripts and proof of test scores for each, to the entire committee for consideration. The State Committee will make the final decision on who the recipients will be. Once the award recipients are chosen, the MPSSAA office notifies the winners via email and US Mail. Formal invitations are also sent out to the parents, students, and school personnel in the US Mail.
