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 with funding provided by the University's former School-As-Lender program. Future amounts and availability of funding will depend upon market conditions. MWU Need-Based Scholarships, if available, are in addition to scholarships historically awarded at MWU.
MWU Financial Literacy Scholarship: Through our "Sensible Strategies" Program, MWU is committed to providing on-going 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.
