Miner Alumni Association Giving

The Miner Alumni Association provides about $300,000 each year in scholarship support to over 250 Missouri S&T students. Students especially appreciate the association’s general scholarships that stay with them – even if they change majors. 

In addition to scholarships, gifts to the Miner Alumni Association help:
  • send the award winning Missouri S&T Magazine free, three times a year
  • host a senior gathering to welcome graduates to the association
  • alumni stay connected through our online community
  • host Homecoming, reunions and other special events
  • provide awards to outstanding students, faculty and staff
