Messiah University's response to COVID-19

Messiah is in session this fall with flexible in-person and remote learning options, health and safety protocols and student care and support.


Multicultural Scholarships

Part of Messiah College’s mission is to equip students to live lives of service, leadership, and reconciliation in church and society. One cannot look at this part of Messiah’s mission without addressing 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 introduces the Lloyd and Lois Martin Multicultural Scholarship and the Rachel Helen Flowers Multicultural Scholarship.

These scholarships are open to all domestic students of color, as well as any student who confirms involvement in the promotion of racial and ethnic diversity and reconciliation as noted on their Messiah College application for admission. Interested students must complete the Messiah College application process prior to February 17.

Students will be invited to visit Messiah’s campus for a Multicultural Scholarship Day in February. Attendance at one of these events is required for consideration.

Messiah College will award several full-tuition scholarships and partial tuition scholarships to incoming students who are also selected by a committee from students who visit for a Multicultural Scholarship Day.

The scholarships are awarded once a year and begin in the fall semester. They are renewable for up to three additional years (four years total) at Messiah College. Students who receive either a Martin Scholarship or an R. H. Flowers Scholarship must maintain satisfactory academic progress and involvement in the Martin Scholars Program or the R. H. Flowers Scholars Program.
