Students who have a financial need may obtain assistance from the Maplewood Academy Scholarship Council (MASC). There are two programs available to students. In the matching program, MASC will match the amount given by a local church to aid a specific student up to $2,000 per year for dorm students and $1,000 for community students. In the general assistance program, MASC may provide a scholarship up to $3,000 per year. Students who need financial assistance should make application before July 15, or as far in advance of registration as possible. Applications for matching funds must be signed by both the pastor and the treasurer of the local church. Criteria for providing aid are financial need and students’ willingness to pay a portion of their tuition costs by faithfully working at their assigned jobs. (See application for other requirements.) Applications for either of the MASC programs may be obtained from the Business Office.
