Scholarship initiatives provide the financial resources that help fund the difference between the University's true cost of educating a student, and what a student actually pays in tuition. By providing scholarships, MACU attracts the kind of students who can best benefit from a MACU education, but who may not have the personal funds to cover all of his or her tuition costs. Every gift to MACU scholarship programs go directly to providing student scholarships.

Churches often wish to help students from their congregations to attend MACU. MACU matches up to $500 per semester for a total of $1,000 in a calendar year. In other words, if a church will inform the Office for University Advancement that it wishes to give a matching gift of $500 for student "John Smith" then the university will match that gift with a $500 scholarship. Now John Smith receives $1,000 toward his college expenses.
When sending the church's contribution, make check payable to "MACU Church Match Program." For more information, contact the Executive Director of Church Relations.

The scholarship program is also designed to encourage business majors to pursue internships with those sponsoring businesses and donors. For more information in how to contribute to the business scholarship program contact the Office for University Advancement.
