Endowed Scholarships

All students are encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) every academic year online at www.studentaid.gov and include our Marymount Manhattan College Federal School Code (002769) for consideration of all MMC need-based institutional grants including endowed scholarships. MMC institutional scholarships, grants and combinations of grants are awarded up to tuition costs only, depending on individual need.
