The Citizen Scholar Award was initiated in 2007 as a special Board of Governors program to recognize outstanding citizen scholars at Missouri State University. Eighty-three students since 2007 have been recognized for their stellar achievements with academics, community engagement and leadership. Citizen Scholar nominations may be made by Missouri State University faculty and staff members each fall.
The nominations for the 2021-2022 Citizen Scholar Award are open. Any questions may be directed to the Office of Student Affairs via phone at 417-836-5526 or email at StudentAffairs@MissouriState.edu.
The nomination procedure, forms and selection criteria can be found on the Citizen Scholar homepage.
