Scholars Day

Nov. 16, 2023

Join us on November 16, 2023, for MVNU's Scholars Day.

If you're a high-achieving student, this is your opportunity to earn significant academic scholarships - including one of two full-tuition scholarships and the MVNU Presidential Scholarship (up to $3,000) – while learning more about MVNU’s Honors Program, undergraduate research (SPUR), global and local community engagement opportunities, and much more.

Students attending the Scholars Day will also be considered for a spot in MVNU’s Honors Program.

Students who meet the qualifications and attend the event are guaranteed $500 in scholarship funds with an additional $1,000 awarded to those selected for the Honors Program. Space is limited, so register today!
