The Morrill Scholars Program (MSP) is named in honor of Senator Justin Morrill, author of the 1862 Morrill Act that facilitated access to higher education for students previously underrepresented at America’s colleges. The Office of Minority Affairs offers this program to promote diversity, multiculturalism, and scholarship and to enrich the educational experience of all Ohio State students so they will be prepared for optimum success in the world community. We expect all of our scholarship recipients to actively participate in cultural and multicultural events, activities, and organizations to help build a diverse community that utilizes our collective strengths, talents, leadership, and interests to foster an environment where all can reach their full potentials.Teaching students about the land grant mission of the university through a special program for land grant scholars is unique to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Its director hopes the UNL Morrill Scholars Program grows so hundreds of students can learn about the system founded to provide education to all people, as well as the service and leadership traits of the man who established the system.

Harvey's vision is to have a learning community of Morrill scholars that lives in a dorm together, takes classes and does things together and is very active in the community. He also would like to take the program nationally, establishing a Justin Smith Morrill Scholars Program in each land grant institution. "It would be thought of as the premier service and civic engagement organization across the country," he said.

OSU also offers the Morrill Scholars Program

Harvey said UNL Morrill scholars focus on leadership engagement, service and politics. He believes it's important to re-connect students with the land grant university and why it came to be, so Morrill scholars take a trip to Morrill's home town of Strafford, Vermont, study Morrill's biography and learn ways they can apply what they've learned. In the five years the Morrill Scholars Program has existed, 40 students have gone through the program.
