An Exceptional Education Made Affordable

Thanks to Leland Speed and his family, high school seniors and transfers entering MC in 2024 who are residents of Mississippi can receive full undergraduate tuition at MC. The Speed Scholarship exists to make exceptional education attainable at an institution dedicated to helping students grow their whole self: academically, spiritually, and emotionally. We are excited to use this generous gift to expand the higher education opportunities available to undergraduate Mississippi students. 

Applying the Speed Scholarship with Four Year Cost

Traditional MC academic scholarships cannot be stacked on top of the Speed Full Tuition Scholarship. Grants,* third party scholarships, and some additional MC scholarships may be stacked and applied toward room and board.

*MTAG is applied to MC tuition prior to Speed Scholarship and cannot be applied towards room and board.

To Receive The Speed Scholarship in Fall 2024:

  1. Be a resident of Mississippi.
  2. Be admitted to MC.
  3. Pay the housing application fee of $200 by February 1, 2024.
  4. Live on campus in an MC residence hall.
