UM-Tupelo and The UM Office of Financial Aid administer a variety of financial assistance programs designed to help students and their families meet the costs of attending The University. The four basic types of student financial assistance are scholarships, grants, loans, and part-time employment.
Scholarships are gift programs that do not have to be repaid. They are typically awarded in recognition of significant achievement or academic talent. UM-Tupelo offers numerous scholarships to help you finance your education. We urge you to apply for as many scholarships as you qualify for.
Grants are gift aid that do not have to be repaid. Grants usually require a demonstration of financial need.
Loans are funds that have to be repaid with interest.
Part-time employment, on The UM-Tupelo campus, provides opportunities for students to earn money to apply toward their educational expenses.
