Welcome to the Luckyday Scholars Program at The University of Mississippi!
The Luckyday Foundation funds scholarships for Mississippi high school seniors who possess qualities of an exemplary student, demonstrate strong leadership skills, and exhibit a commitment to serving the community to pursue a higher education at the University of Mississippi.
The Luckyday Scholars Program offers both financial and educational support to all scholars selected to the program. Each year, the University of Mississippi awards:
- 80 Luckyday scholarships to first-time freshmen for $6,000 per year for four years ($24,000 in total scholarship money)
- 25 Community College Transfer students for the Luckyday Community College Transfer Scholarship for $6,000 per year for two years ($12,000 in total scholarship money)
In addition to scholarship funding, Luckyday Scholars are given the opportunity to engage in programming built around the four areas of success: scholarship, community, service, and leadership. Luckyday program staff and student leaders provide support and encouragement to the Scholars throughout the program.
