Apply to Millsaps

 

All admitted undergraduates will be considered automatically 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

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 and our applicant pools are increasingly competitive, the table below allows you to use your highest reported GPA and highest super-scored ACT (or SAT) score to estimate your merit scholarship 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. High school grades/transcripts submitted at the time of the student’s application will be utilized for holistic admission and scholarship review; subsequent increases in grades or GPA will only be used for students initially deferred or wait listed. Students may submit higher standardized test scores and request a re-review of their scholarship decision; the last testing dates considered for Millsaps’ scholarship review are the February ACT and/or SAT.

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 a few examples, where all 3 students have the same GPA and ACT score but receive different scholarship awards:

  • A student with a 3.80 GPA and a 29 ACT score with average coursework and little extracurricular involvement could receive $25,000 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 challenging coursework and leadership in extracurricular activities could receive $26,000 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 challenging  coursework and demonstrated strong leadership in extracurricular activities, strong recommendations, and a parent who attended Millsaps could receive $27,000 per year in merit scholarship, including a Legacy scholarship, and may be eligible for additional need-based awards, if they complete the FAFSA.
