Students must enroll in a minimum of 2 credits per semester, 4 credits per academic year, with a maximum of 10 credits per academic year. The MAWQCP scholarship will award $140 per credit for a student’s first and second semester in the program and will award $90 per credit for subsequent semesters.

The MAWQCP scholarship will take a student’s existing scholarships and financial aid into consideration. The MAWQCP scholarship will cover the remaining tuition balance up to $140 per credit for a student’s first and second semester and up to $90 per credit for subsequent semesters. For example, if a student is in their first semester of the FBM program, is taking 2 credits and has a scholarship of $200 ($100 per credit) the MAWQCP scholarship will cover the remaining $40 per credit.
