Scholarships

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.

Below is an overview of our Undergraduate Institutional merit, athletic, talent and academic scholarship programs as well as scholarships for evening/online students and graduate Assistantships. Our Admissions Office and Financial Aid Office are happy to discuss these with students during campus visits, open houses or by calling or scheduling an appointment.

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. Most institutional scholarships are renewable for up to four years when a student meets the renewal requirements outlined for the specific award. Students may only receive one scholarship from each category (i.e. 1 Merit + 1 Athletic or Talent + 1 Other).

All Midway University scholarship awards are for the full academic year and are split evenly between the fall and spring semester only.
