Millersville University Scholarships

Scholarships

Scholarships are financial aid that you don’t have to pay back. Scholarships can come from many places including your state government, private organizations like churches or local clubs, and colleges. Sometimes scholarships are based on academic or athletic talent. Other times scholarships may be based on your interest in a specific subject or career. It’s important to remember that many scholarships include a separate application process outside both the regular application process to college and the financial aid application process.
