Merit Scholarships for the MSMU Class of 2021
Freshman academic scholarships are based on several criteria, including course achievement, SAT (evidence-based reading/writing and math sections) and/or ACT tests, and achievement in extracurricular activities. Financial need is not a factor in merit-based award decisions.
The following are descriptions of the attributes of academic scholarship recipients. Once a student is accepted and offered an academic scholarship, additional scores after the date of acceptance cannot increase the amount.
Trustee Scholarship ($24,000 per year)
Accepted students receive this scholarship if they fall in one of two academic profiles: 1) An SAT score of 1310 or higher (28 ACT) with a GPA of 2.75 or higher, or 2) An SAT score of 1270 or higher (26 ACT) with a GPA of 3.5 or higher.
Presidential Scholarship ($22,000 per year)
Accepted students receive this scholarship if they have an SAT score of 1170 or higher (24 ACT) with a GPA of 2.75 or higher.
Dean's Scholarship ($20,000 per year)
Accepted students receive this scholarship if they fall into one of two academic profiles: 1) An SAT score of 1130-1160 (22-23 ACT) with a GPA of 2.75 or higher, or 2) An SAT score of 980 or higher (19 ACT) with a GPA of 3.0 or higher.
