Starting this April 2021, MSI started providing academic scholarships to college-bound, high-school seniors who excel academically, exhibit exceptional leadership potential, participate in community service activities, & demonstrate financial need.
The scholarships were granted to high school students from Tustin Public Schools Foundation in Southern California. MSI’s efforts were well received by TPSF especially during the pandemic. The two students who received MSI’s scholarships are on their way to the universities of Portland and Southern California respectively, for their undergraduate studies. The scholarships were provided as a result of a rigorous vetting process, where the applicants shared their academic/career goals, and their inspiration to pursue education and create an impact in their communities.
We are proud to partner with TPSF and wish all the very best to MSI Scholarship recipients.
