Scholarships

Thanks to the vision and generosity of many donors, Midland University offers a variety of scholarships with varied and diverse criteria. When you give to student scholarships at Midland University, you help offset the cost of education and open up opportunities for students who, due to financial pressures, would be unable to obtain an undergraduate degree.

We encourage you to browse our descriptions of the various scholarships to learn more about the donors and their intent in establishing these scholarships. If you are interested in establishing a scholarship, please contact Jessica Janssen at 402-941-6523 or janssen@midlandu.edu.
