Outside Scholarships

Outside Scholarships

Outside Scholarships are funds that are not associated with Midland College's scholarship or financial aid offices.


Select options below for more information.

 

If an outside organization or person wishes to pay for a student's tuition, fees, room and board, and/or books, this is considered an outside scholarship by the Financial Aid Office at Midland College. All outside scholarships are processed according to the donor's written request. If a written summary of fund disbursement is not provided, the Scholarship Specialist will determine how to apply funds accordingly. Based on donor request, unused funds may be:

  • Rolled over into the next consecutive term;
  • Given directly to the student in the form of a refund; or
  • Sent back to the donor.

Unless indicated otherwise by the donor, Midland College Financial Aid Office will hold funds for one academic year and then return any unused funds to the donor.

If the student has documentation or an award from any of the entities below, they will need to bring their paperwork directly to the Cashier’s office, or email it to cashier@midland.edu.
