The MWSU Ambassadors organization is composed of campus and community members who provide a bridge between the campus and community. The Ambassadors focus is to raise funds for scholarships targeting nontraditional students.

Scholarship Programs

The MWSU Ambassadors selected nontraditional students as its primary focus and established a scholarship fund specifically targeted for them. Fundraisers are held throughout the year—as well as the Scholarship Champion giving society to raise funds for scholarships. Since 1989, the group has distributed over $400,000 to more than 650 students.

Meetings and Dues

Four membership luncheon meetings are held each academic year in the Hall of Fame room in Spratt Stadium. Each luncheon has a guest speaker who informs the organization of topics related to Missouri Western or the community and helps increase the community’s awareness of the educational, cultural and financial benefits that Missouri Western brings to the greater St. Joseph area.

Dues are $25 per year.
