MSPP Institutional Aid
Scholarships & Employment
MSPP offers both merit scholarships and need-based grants. All MSPP applicants will be considered for a merit-based scholarship by the Admissions Committee based upon your application materials and your admissions interview. You will be notified of any merit-based scholarships on your offer of admission.
Need-based grants require that you file a FAFSA. In order to review files in a timely manner, we ask that you submit your FAFSA as soon as possible after January 1st. If you haven't filed your taxes yet, it is acceptable to use estimated figures in order to expedite the process. Need-based grants are limited so make sure you apply early. The Scholarship Committee will review your application materials and determine if you can be considered for a need-based scholarship. You will be notified of need-based grants on your financial aid award letter
Both types of scholarships are renewable each year (up to four years maximum) provided that you remain in good academic standing and continue to make Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP).
