Download the Application now!
Part of Messiah College’s mission is to equip students to live lives of service, leadership, and reconciliation in church and society. One cannot begin to look at this part of Messiah’s mission without dealing with the need for racial and ethnic diversity and reconciliation in our communities, our country, and our world. It is in this spirit that Messiah College introduced the Lloyd and Lois Martin Multicultural Scholarship.
This scholarship is designed for students who not only exhibit a strong scholarship and service, ministry, or leadership in their school, church, or community, but also have demonstrated a commitment to promoting racial and ethnic diversity and reconciliation.
To be eligible, students must be able to file a FAFSA and achieve one or more of the following:
- Rank in the top 10% of their graduating class
- Have at least a 3.6 GPA
- Score at least a 1200 on the SAT I (Critical Reading & Math Sections only), OR at least a 26 on the ACT
Students must also be able to demonstrate significant leadership, service, or ministry involvement in their school, church, or community as well as have a record of promoting racial and ethnic diversity and reconciliation.
Leadership involvements and activities should be noted on Messiah’s application for admission, as well as any additional documentation the student feels exhibit his/her promotion of racial and ethnic diversity and reconciliation.
Messiah College will award three full-tuition scholarships to incoming first-year students who not only meet the above criteria, but are also selected by committee from a pool of first-year students. Students who submit a complete application for admission to Messiah College prior to February 15 will be considered for the scholarship. Several students will be invited to be part of an interview process, on Messiah’s campus, on a day in March. An in-person interview is required.
The scholarships are awarded once a year and begin in the fall semester. They are renewable for up to four years at Messiah College. Students who receive the Martin’s Scholarship must maintain a 3.0 GPA as well as continued leadership, service, or ministry at Messiah.
