the highest recognition
Presidential Academic Scholarships are awarded as the highest recognition given for academic, extracurricular, and church/community involvement and rewards students for their commitment to the vision of Christian higher education.
This scholarship is worth up to an additional $5,000 beyond other MVNU merit scholarships for which you qualify and is renewable for up to five years based on the same maintenance criteria established for your other merit scholarships.
Students wishing to be considered for this scholarship are invited to attend the Presidential Scholarship Day on Monday, December 7. Here they will compete with other incoming first-time students by completing an interview with a panel of judges. In addition to participating in the event, a brief essay, included as part of the application, will also be used in determining the award recipients.
