Scholarships

Each year the MEF has the honor of awarding a $1,000 or $750 scholarship to a graduating senior who has demonstrated not only high academic standards and leadership abilities while a student at Mercer, but also a willingness to give back to the community.  The applicants must have a GPA of 3.5 or better, complete a lengthy application, and also have a formal interview with the scholarship committee.  Upon receiving the scholarship, the student is able to renew it for three more years as long as they are a full time college student with a cummulative GPA of 3.0 or higher.

The MEF has awarded 6 such scholarships since the foundation was started, as well as 5 one time scholarships of $500.   Its recipients are the following:
