Scholarships


At Mount Marty College, we believe our most important investment is in our students. We believe that financial limitations should not be a barrier to qualified students desiring to attend the College.

Ninety-nine percent of Mount Marty College students receive financial assistance. The majority of this assistance is achieved through annual and endowed scholarships that are funded by donations from alumni, businesses, and friends of the College. You can help make the goal of a Mount Marty College education a reality for many students by joining those that give to a scholarship fund

Thank you to those who have already established and/or funded a scholarship at the College. We truly appreciate your generosity!

Annual Scholarships
Annual Scholarships are funds that receive funds each year from one or more donors. Each fall, the total amount of funds in each individual annual scholarship will be awarded to a student that meets the scholarship criteria. If no qualified recipient is found, funds will be held over for the next year.

As of January 1, 2012, the College implemented a new policy for annual scholarship gifts. Annual Scholarship gifts received January 1 - December 31 each year will be awarded the following fall semester.

Endowed Scholarships
An endowment gift enables donors to create a lasting and meaningful difference in the lives of our students through a perpetual source of scholarship funds. Your gift can establish a new endowment fund or be added to an existing one. Minimum support levels for endowments have been established in order to guarantee that the income from the funds will be adequate to support a scholarship. All endowed scholarships are invested through the College's endowment fund.

If you would like to donate to an existing scholarship, you can give a gift online or mail your contribution to:
