Other Scholarship Opportunities
Annual Scholarships are funds that receive donations each year from one or more donors.
Gifts to the general MMC Annual Scholarship Fund will benefit all Mount Marty students that need financial assistance. However, you can also establish a named annual scholarship that will be awarded to a student that meets the criteria for that scholarship. These scholarship funds can be named by the initial donor.
Annual Scholarship gifts received between January 1 and December 31 each year will be awarded the following fall semester.
An endowment gift enables donors to create a lasting and meaningful difference in the lives of our students through a continuous source of scholarship funds. Your gift can establish a new endowment fund or be added to an existing fund.
Minimum support levels for endowments have been established in order to guarantee that the income from the funds will adequately support a scholarship. All endowed scholarships are invested through the College's endowment fund.
