The University of Mississippi - JumpStart

JumpStart Scholarship

ALL JumpStart students enrolled in 6 credit hours at the University of Mississippi are awarded a half-tuition scholarship of $918.00 ($459.00 in August Intersession). This scholarship does NOT cover out-of-state fees.

To ensure the scholarship is applied to your account, students must fill out the Summer Financial Aid application on This application informs the Office of Financial Aid that you are expecting summer aid from the Division of Outreach. The JumpStart Scholarship is uploaded AFTER a student has attended JumpStart KickOff and/or checked in with the JumpStart office. It usually takes 1-2 weeks for the scholarship to appear on the student's financial aid package.

In order to maintain the scholarship, students must maintain a six (6) hour class schedule (2 classes), complete 5 hours of study hall each week, and attend SkillStart sessions each week. If a student does not comply or follow through with the set requirements for JumpStart, the JumpStart office will rescind the scholarship award and the student will be responsible for any and all expenses incurred on the Bursar Bill.
