MOBILE, Ala. — Local students needing an extra scholarship to attend college can get a financial boost from the University of Mobile’s new LIFT (Learning Investments For Tomorrow) Scholarship. The scholarship is designed for new students who have financial need, at least a 3.0 grade point average and are from either Baldwin, Mobile, Washington, Clarke or Escambia County.
According to Lonnie Burnett, University of Mobile president, the LIFT Scholarship was developed to fill a gap between the cost of tuition and the amount covered by financial aid and scholarships.
“There are many students with financial need in our region who want the Christian higher education that UM provides and who would be a good fit for our school,” said Burnett. “We realized that the difference between those students coming to UM or abandoning their dreams was often a relatively small gap of a few thousand dollars. We brought that need to our donors who responded with the funds to create the LIFT Scholarship.”
Eligible students can receive the LIFT Scholarship in addition to financial aid and merit scholarships awarded by the University of Mobile.
There are a limited number of LIFT Scholarships available. To be considered for the Fall 2022 LIFT Scholarship, students must apply by May 1. Students can apply at umobile.edu/apply.
Contact a University of Mobile admissions counselor at 251-442-2222 to check eligibility for the LIFT Scholarship and learn about other scholarships and financial aid options.
The University of Mobile is a Christ-centered university with a vision of “Higher Education for a Higher Purpose,” founded to honor God by equipping students for their future professions in an environment where they are known.
