Institutional Scholarships for Undergraduate Students
At Midway University we do everything possible to make the college experience achievable and affordable. That is why we have developed a comprehensive program of merit scholarship opportunities as well as athletic, talent, and need based scholarships. Each year, over 90 percent of our students participate in our financial assistance programs.

For scholarship consideration, students must be enrolled as an Undergraduate student and attend full-time. Scholarship eligibility is determined during application and admission to Midway University.
