What are you looking for in a titleholder?

Miss Collegiate USA Organization's national titleholders should embody the essence of our mission by being a positive role model for college-bound and college students obtaining their higher education degree(s); support our organization's charity to reduce the nation's student loan debt epidemic and represent young women on financial literacy, academia, and positive leadership. She will have a desire to promote the pageant's platform of "Making College Affordable:  Reducing Student Loan Debt" and promoting our sponsors.  The internal beauty of a queen supersedes external beauty.


Miss Collegiate USA Scholarship Foundation


One of our key missions is to alleviate the cost of out-of-pocket educational expenses through scholarship monies.  Therefore, the MCU Scholarship Foundation provides scholarships for Miss Collegiate USA delegates on the state and national level.  A portion of all membership fees will be applied directly to this fund account.

Our pageant aspirations are to recognize and incentivize young women to receive scholarships for higher education and become positive role models, all while building a strong sisterhood.
