Grants & Funding
Muhlenberg Extended Learning (MXL) Grants
This summer, Muhlenberg’s School of Continuing Studies is offering 80 courses, all offered online. While current full-time students have always been able access Continuing Studies’ summer courses, but financial aid isn’t commonly available for summer.
Through the generosity of several donors, the College is be able to offer 100 one-course scholarships for Muhlenberg’s Summer Study.
Priority for these scholarships will be for current Muhlenberg undergraduate students who are:
- receiving need-based financial aid,
- impacted by the Coronavirus-related disruption this spring, and/or
- in greatest need for a summer course to maintain progress
As a result of both College funding and gifts from alumni of the College, we are able to provide two grant opportunities for students. Both of these grants are need-based and when applications are submitted, student's financial need is vetted with the Office of Financial Aid. We encourage students to complete these applications as thoroughly and timely as possible. Your application will go directly to the Dean of Students and will be reviewed by a committee to award grants.

Some examples of items students may need support with include transportation home in an emergency, the cost of a uniform for a new job, unexpected medical cost, an immediate need for personal, technological, or academic items. More specific information is available on the application.
Experiential Learning Grant - This need-based grant is intended to assist students in engaging in the fullness of the co-curricular and community aspects of the College.
