We review eligibility for every student each year. Students that did not initially receive any merit aid would still be eligible in future academic years. Merit scholarships will be added as part of the financial aid award.
Incoming (traditional) first-year students will be considered for merit scholarships based on their cumulative high school GPA or ACT score. Transfer students and returning MLC students will be considered for merit scholarships based on their cumulative college GPA.
2021-2022 MLC Scholarship Opportunities
Below are the scholarship opportunities for enrolled students during the 2021-2022 academic year. Please note the specific deadlines, qualifications, and application information. Scholarship reminders will be posted on Portal and the MLC Direction Facebook page.
Students that receive a designated MLC scholarship will be asked to write a letter of appreciation (thank you letter).
Students that do not write this letter of appreciation within the designated time frame will forfeit their eligibility for any future MLC scholarship opportunities (excluding merit scholarships and need-based grants).
Congregations can encourage and support their members who are preparing for the public ministry, by participating in the Congregational Partner Grant Program (CPGP). The congregation awards a grant to any undergraduate student enrolled at MLC and MLC will match that grant up to $1200 per student!
Scholarships are available through many different companies and organizations. Spending some time to search for funds and applying to scholarships can be time consuming, but it can also help you get FREE MONEY for your educational costs.
Searching for scholarships is free. If a website requests money to perform a search, do not use that website.
