What you should know about scholarships and financial aid

... and tell your students about Manchester

  • With Manchester’s generous scholarship awards and state and federal financial aid, students pay, on average only 37% of the advertised list price.
  • Manchester academic scholarships are awarded to all first-time students regardless of financial need. Academic scholarships range from $12,000-22,000 based on high school cumulative unweighted grade point average (GPA).
  • Additional scholarships are awarded to Church of the Brethren and legacy students, and students who participate in Esports and music ensembles.
  • A student who receives funds for college from his/her church or from the Dollars for Scholars for program also will receive matching funds from Manchester University, up to $500 per year for each.
  • A $500 visit incentive is awarded to students who complete an admissions visit to Manchester University during the spring semester of their junior year or anytime during their senior year.
  • Students should list Manchester on their FAFSA (Code 001820) to receive a financial aid award package. FAFSA filing opens Oct. 1, and Indiana’s deadline for submission is April 15.
