Speed Scholarship

The Speed Scholarship provides full-tuition scholarships to any admitted high school or transfer student who is a resident of Mississippi.

An Exceptional Education Made Affordable

Thanks to Leland Speed and his family, high school seniors and transfers 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.
