Student Resources and Scholarships
Management Information Systems Student Association (MISSA) is very active with recruiters.
Academic Counselors at Price College serve approximately 3,000 students by teaching them to successfully navigate through university requirements and college policies/procedures.
For the past decade, the MIS division is engaged in obtaining scholarship funding for our students, and many corporations, foundations, and individuals, including MIS alumni, have contributed generously. In 2018, 111 students received scholarships averaging $1000 per scholarship.
For the year 2017, several organizations made donations. These include Accenture, American Fidelity Assurance, Capgemini, ConocoPhillips, Deloitte, Devon, Ernst & Young, Hobby Lobby, Koch Industries, Love's, ONE Gas, ONEOK, Pariveda Solutions, Phillips 66, Pioneer Natural Resources, and Williams. In addition, several foundations, such as American Fidelity Foundation, Schwarzkopf Memorial, and many former students, including Pioneer Natural Resources Alumni contributed generously.
The process works as follows: Every year, in the Fall semester, the MIS division starts a scholarship drive requesting corporations and individuals to donate to scholarship funds for our students for the subsequent year. Students apply for these funds and the MIS division scholarship committee develops a short-list of candidates from the applicant pool. Representatives from donor organizations and the MIS scholarship committee interview this set of students in the Spring semester. Students are selected and notified of their award by late Spring. In the subsequent Fall semester, a nice MIS Banquet honoring our students is held that is attended by about 200 people including donors, students, friends and family. Students are recognized for their achievements and receive their scholarship certificate directly from representatives of the donor organizations that provided the funding.
