Scholarship Information

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

For merit scholarships, admitted students who are full-time students in Midway’s Women’s College are eligible for consideration. For need-based aid, students must complete and file the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) as soon as possible after January 1. Students are strongly encouraged to file the FAFSA online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. The information provided is used to compute your family’s Expected Family Contribution (EFC). A formula developed by the U.S. Department of Education is used for the calculation. From the information supplied, Midway College will be able to calculate your eligibility for State, Federal and College need-based programs.

For scholarship consideration, students must pursue their degree in the Women’s College and attend full-time.
