Your gift to the academic scholarship drive will help hard-working students like Taylor and Trevor.

Taylor Cropped.jpg“Attending Mayville State to pursue my education has turned out to be one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I love the small town feel of the university and the personal
connections you are able to make with your professors and peers. Growing up in Hoople, N.D., I was used to the small town experience. My transition to college was so much easier than I expected because of how welcoming the Mayville State community was and still is.

“Receiving scholarship assistance has allowed me to pursue my education and get involved on campus without having to worry about any financial setbacks that would take away from those valuable experiences.

“I am pursuing a degree in Social Science Education with minors in Psychology and Special Needs. Along with my
studies, I play basketball for the Comets varsity team and participate in other clubs and organizations on campus.”

Taylor Reilly, Hoople, N.D.
2020-21 recipient of the Harvey & Melanie Noteboom Scholarship

Trevor Cropped.jpg“Mayville State feels like a family rather than a school that I attend. That means a lot, coming from a graduating class of nine. Everyone says ‘hi’ to one another. Teachers know your first name. If you are ever in need of help, anyone on this campus would be willing.

“My major at Mayville State University is a Composite in Biology Secondary Education. When I complete my degree I plan to move to Alaska for a few years to teach and coach students there.

“I liken a scholarship to fertilizer helping a plant (the scholarship recipient) to grow. Receiving a scholarship gives me a huge sense of relief, and a deep appreciation for the donor. Receiving any financial assistance will make a huge difference in the life of any student.”

Trevor Gravseth, Cooperstown, N.D.

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 131 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. North Dakota Challenge Grant matching funds are available for a limited time. If your gift for academic scholarships arrives at the MSU Foundation by early December, the State of North Dakota will match that 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.
