Apply to Millsaps

 

All admitted undergraduates will be considered for merit scholarships, based on the criteria below. Additionally, students wishing to apply for need-based financial aid should submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Learn more about FAFSA and how it can help you minimize college costs here. (PDF)

We know that planning and paying for college can be confusing, so we want to help you understand Millsaps' simplified scholarship selection system. While every applicant is reviewed individually, the table below allows you to use your grades and ACT (or SAT) score to estimate your merit scholarship range. Within each range, the final award will be determined by additional criteria such as the rigor of a student's academic program and high school curriculum, leadership, extracurricular involvement, letters of recommendation, alumni/legacy relationships, institutional fit and demonstrated interest.

For new, entering, domestic freshmen applicants only. The matrix above does NOT include additional awards for students with artistic, musical, or theatre talent, or for students awarded need based financial aid after filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The matrix scholarship ranges DO account for alumni relationships and include Legacy Scholarships.

Here are some examples:

  • A student with a 3.60 and a 26 ACT score, with strong recommendation letters and strong leadership in extracurricular involvement, would receive $24,000 per year in merit scholarship, and may be eligible for additional need-based awards, if they complete the FAFSA.
  • A student with a 3.20 GPA and a 21 ACT score, with only a few extracurricular activities would receive $16,000 per year in merit scholarship, and may be eligible for additional need-based awards, if they complete the FAFSA.
  • A student with a 3.80 GPA and a 29 ACT score, with strong leadership in extracurricular activities and a parent who attended Millsaps, would receive a total of $26,000 ($24,000 per year in merit scholarship, plus a $2,000 legacy scholarship), and may be eligible for additional need-based awards, if they complete the FAFSA.
