Mississippi Scholarships

[Mississippi features a variety of postsecondary institutions, particularly for the Christian student. The state has a number of Christian colleges like Southeastern Baptist College and Mississippi College.

Of course, Mississippi’s educational opportunities aren’t limited to Christian schools. The University of Mississippi and Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College are just two of the state’s many two- and four-year institutions.

Funding your education at one of these colleges can be tricky. Don’t worry, though: there are plenty of scholarships in Mississippi to help you pay your way.

Popular Mississippi Scholarships

If you are an in-state student, the Mississippi Resident Tuition Assistance Grant (MTAG) is a good source of funding. This $1,000 award is available to Mississippi residents studying full-time.

Members of the Mississippi National Guard are eligible for the State Education Assistance program. The military awards about 2,000 of these scholarships per year.

In addition to these state-funded opportunities, Mississippi institutions provide substantial financial aid. Ole Miss funds several merit awards, such as the Robert M. Carrier and W.R. Newman scholarships.

These are just a few of many available Mississippi scholarships. Visit our scholarship directory for a complete list.

Many Mississippi scholarships, particularly those for community colleges, are for local residents. For example, Copiah-Lincoln Community College reserves the H.F. McCarty, Jr. Endowed Scholarship for residents of Simpson County.

While many have more general requirements, certain Mississippi scholarships are intended for specific vocations or fields of study. Among these is the state-funded Law Enforcement Officers and Fireman Scholarship, which seeks to provide support for future policemen and firefighters.
