The grant will be distributed over five years and was available as of Oct. 1, 2018.

Alumni, veterans honored
Mayville State University alumni and friends, as well as veterans and all U.S. military personnel, were honored during the MSU Alumni Association’s 2018 homecoming festivities held Sept. 28-30. The weekend was highlighted by good times and good friends, all with a common thread of Mayville State University, “the school of personal service.”
The annual homecoming activities, sponsored by the Mayville State University Alumni Association, began with the Athletic Hall of Fame and Athletic Coaches Hall of Fame Awards Dinner held Friday evening, Sept. 28. About 200 folks enjoyed the evening, which included the induction of several to the MSU Athletic Hall of Fame and the MSU Athletic Coaches Hall of Fame. Mayville State graduate (1965) and 2008 MSU Athletic Hall of Fame inductee Lt. Gen. Emil R. “Buck” Bedard, USMC (ret.) served as honorary emcee of the program. MSU Athletic Director Ryan Hall presented each of the honorees for induction.
