‘A grateful heart gives back,’ MSU alum donates M for scholarships

A recent donation to Missouri State University will provide a $2,000 scholarship to as many as 22 business majors each year.

Phillip “Phil” Roberts donated $1 million to establish a scholarship fund for the College of Business.

Brent Dunn, executive director of the MSU Foundation, said of the gift: “A grateful heart gives back.”

“Phil Roberts fondly recalls his time at Missouri State and has passed down that love to his family,” said Dunn, in a news release. “With this endowment, he guarantees more students can attend college that couldn’t otherwise and ensures that they aren’t unnecessarily burdened with student loans.”
