TUITION ASSISTANCE

All families are eligible for tuition assistance, regardless of your family income.

What is the cost to attend the MPP Academy?

If your family’s annual household income is less than $75,000, you’ll pay nothing toward the cost of tuition.

Families who earn more than $75,000 may still qualify for tuition assistance.

Guiding principles

  • A lack of financial resources or need for tuition assistance are not impediments to your admission.
  • MPP Academy families with an annual household income of up to $75,000 will be expected to contribute nothing to the cost of their child’s tuition for MPP’s academic year program and summer intensive program.
  • Our aid is entirely need-based, and eligibility is determined in the same manner for all admitted students regardless of nationality or citizenship.
  • We meet your demonstrated financial need, based on information that we receive in your tuition assistance application from your family each year.

Make your MPP Academy experience possible through our Tuition Assistance Program

The NAPCA Foundation understands that family circumstances may not enable all qualified students to attend a program without tuition assistance. Therefore, through the generosity of donors, tuition assistance, to the extent possible, will be made available to assist as many admitted students as possible.

All applicants must be able to demonstrate financial need. The tuition assistance committee takes into consideration extenuating circumstances such as recent job loss, illness, and injury. Limited aid is available and an application is not a guarantee of tuition assistance. Tuition assistance awards are made on a rolling basis and will be distributed until all funds have been exhausted.

Students will be notified of their Tuition Assistance Award at the time they receive their admission decision letter via email.

Don’t wait until you’re accepted to MPP to apply for tuition assistance.

Tuition Assistance Application & Requirements

Household Information

PROOF OF INCOME FROM PARENTS/GUARDIANS

  • Providing Proof of Income from both of the student’s parents including step-parent(s) living in the same household with the student, if applicable, is required unless you have a special circumstance.
  • If your family has a special circumstance that prevents both of the student’s parents from providing proof of income, you will need to describe your special circumstance in the application as it will help our tuition assistance committee better understand your situation.

PARENTS WHO ARE NOT LIVING IN THE SAME HOUSEHOLD

  • Parents who are not living in the same household can submit their proof of income separately.
  • If your family chooses to submit proof of income separately, each parent will need to complete and submit the tuition assistance application for their child independently.

Proof of Income: All families must submit a copy of their most recent federal income tax return to be considered for tuition assistance.

Tuition Assistance Application

  • There is no application deadline. Students are encouraged to apply early for priority consideration.
  • Tuition assistance awards are made on a rolling basis and will be distributed until all funds have been exhausted.
  • Limited aid is available and an application is not a guarantee of tuition assistance.

What happens next?

  • All of the information you submit in your tuition assistance application will help MPP determine the total amount of scholarship funds you may be awarded.
  • You will be notified of your tuition assistance award offer in your “Admission Decision Letter” via email.

Fundraising

Students and parents have reported that online fundraising was one of the best ways to secure the additional funds needed to cover their cost to attend the MPP Academy. Our students and parents wrote a compelling letter to ask for donations from family and friends. Additionally, parents that maintained a Facebook page, placed the donation letter on their Facebook page to spread the word to family and friends. Many of our students have used gofundme.com or other fundraising platforms to raise funds.

Online fundraising has proven to work for our students and parents. In several cases, students have been able to raise funds covering the full cost of their program and travel expenses.
