Tower Guard Scholarship

As one of MSU’s oldest active student organizations, the Tower Guard selects its members from the top 5% of the freshman class. Beginning in the 1930s, its members sought to facilitate academic success for blind students through a volunteer reading program. They are among the most scholastically dedicated members of Michigan State University. Tower Guards are consistently active, hard-working students who devote a significant amount of time toward the RCPD mission.

Scholarships are provided annually to assist hard-working Tower Guards in mitigating financial pressure.
