Opportunity: Scholarships and Financial Assistance

Mount Union Campaign Logo


Scholarships and Financial Assistance

First and foremost, students need access to a Mount Union education. The generosity of our alumni and friends will allow us to provide the scholarship support necessary to make the dream of attending Mount Union a realistic opportunity for students of all backgrounds. Learn more about scholarships.

The cost of a college education and increasing student debt are in the national spotlight, and both are top concerns for today’s families. Both pose significant obstacles for students seeking undergraduate and graduate degrees. Ensuring that hardworking families and students continue to have access to a Mount Union education is essential to fulfilling our mission to prepare students for fulfilling lives, meaningful work, and responsible citizenship.

The campaign goal for scholarships and financial assistance is $25 million.

Giving Opportunities

  1. Endowed Scholarships

    Endowed scholarships come in all shapes and sizes, customized to reflect the interests and hopes of those who create them. Since the principal of an endowed scholarship fund is kept intact with only the annual earnings used to fund current scholarship needs, endowed scholarships provide funding to our students in perpetuity.

    Endowed Scholarships
    Gifts of $25,000 or more

  2. Current Scholarships

    Current scholarships are the most direct way of assuring that students will be able to benefit from a Mount education. There is no minimum gift amount, and the entire gift is awarded to a qualified student(s) in the upcoming academic year or until exhausted.

  3. President's Rescue Fund

    The President’s Rescue fund, established in 2016 by Mount Union alumni, was created with student success in mind and is focused on ensuring that all Mount Union students are given the opportunity to succeed and graduate. The Fund offers tuition assistance to junior and senior students who find themselves in dire financial need and have explored all other financial aid and loan options to continue their education. Financial assistance provided by this fund is given to students who are in good academic and social standing and desperately want to complete their academic career at Mount Union.
