Martin Luther College Merit Scholarship Opportunities:

No application is required. We review eligibility for every student each year. 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.
