Scholarships


Maryville is committed to making a top-ranked, private education affordable. Last year we awarded over $51 million in scholarships and financial aid to 95 percent of our full-time students. We also offer a variety of merit-based scholarships for incoming students who have worked hard to achieve success.

There are many scholarships sponsored by companies, fraternal organizations, churches, professional groups and employment affiliates. Spend some time researching potential funding sources through links in the Financial Aid menu or direct access at:
