Scholarships for Psychology & Family Science Majors

Family Science Major Scholarships

Several scholarships totaling over $10,000 are available to students officially registered as a Family Science major each year. Scholarships are awarded based on different criteria such as program of study, need, leadership skill, attitude, or academic achievement. One of the larger scholarships requires an ACT (composite) score of 22, and another requires that the recipient be a first-year student. These often go unawarded. Thus, anyone meeting either of these criteria should apply because chances are highly in their favor. Applications are typically due in March, but can be submitted at any time.

Mississippi Financial Aid

The state of Mississippi provides about $40 million each year to help students go to college. The state offers three undergraduate grant programs: HELP, which awards full tuition for students with financial need; MTAG, which awards $500 per year to freshmen and sophomores and $1,000 per year to juniors and seniors; and MESG, which awards $2,500 per year to high-achieving students with a 29 or higher ACT and 3.5 or higher GPA. All three grant programs require students to enroll full-time each term.
