Scholarships

Downers Grove, IL Campus

MWU Need-Based Scholarship: Awarded to students who demonstrate the most significant financial need as determined by their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Students must meet MWU's priority financial aid deadline date in order to be considered for eligibility. MWU's goal is to award between $150,000 and $300,000 each year in non-renewable institutional scholarships to students from each of the University's colleges. The availability of these funds is determined annually and may be increased or decreased.

MWU Financial Literacy Scholarship: Through our "Sensible Strategies" Program, MWU is committed to providing information about financial literacy and planning for the future through a variety of University-sponsored events, programs and planning tools. It is our objective to encourage students to borrow less, live frugally and graduate with the least possible debt. We demonstrate our commitment to this effort through these scholarships. It is anticipated that these awards will be made annually in support of our efforts to encourage excellent financial practices. Funding is provided by the University's former School-As-Lender program. Future amounts and availability of funding will depend upon market conditions.

MWU Spirit of Service Scholarship: These scholarships are funded through proceeds from the Chippin' in for Students Golf Classic. They were established for the benefit of MWU students who have actively participated in community service activities and demonstrate leadership. Students from all of MWU colleges are eligible for these scholarships.

The CCOM Scholarship Fund: CCOM awards scholarships based on a student's academic achievement, exceptional financial need, and motivation toward osteopathic medicine (extracurricular activity involvement at CCOM). The number and amount of this grant varies per year. Students are notified by the Office of Development and Alumni Relations or the CCOM Scholarship Committee when applications become available.
