University of Mississippi IEP Scholarships

Refer-A-Friend Discount

Save $500 off tuition when you bring a friend to the IEP at the University of Mississippi!

Current, full-time IEP students who have been enrolled in the IEP for at least 1 semester AND who bring a family member or friend to study as a full-time IEP student will receive $500 off tuition for Intensive English (IE) classes during their family member/friend’s first session.

Only current, full-time IEP students can receive the discount, which is only valid for NEW full-time IEP students, and the discount is only valid for one semester.

There is no limit to how many friends a student can refer, but only one current student can receive the discount for each new student. The new student MUST indicate that they heard about the IEP program from the current student on the original application.

Funds are credited directly to the students’ tuition balances, and no money will be paid directly to students. Discounts must be used in the first semester that the new student is enrolled full-time. In addition, the total discount cannot exceed a student’s current tuition balance (fees excluded), nor can the discount be held to the next semester.

For over a decade, the teaching career of Brenda Hales enriched the learning experience of international students at the University of Mississippi. Both inside and outside of the classroom, she touched the lives of students young and old.

The Jonatas Lima Memorial Scholarship

Receive a scholarship covering the full cost of tuition and fees!

The Intensive English Program at the University of Mississippi is pleased and honored to announce the Jonatas Lima Memorial Scholarship, which will provide funding for one student, fully covering the tuition and fees for up to two semesters.

The IEP recognizes the obstacle of paying for funding to study in the United States. A scholarship can help by permitting outstanding students to pursue their education. Recognizing this need, the IEP has established one full tuition scholarship for one student each academic year (fall-spring semesters).

The scholarship honors Jonatas Lima, who was an intelligent, helpful, and friendly student from Goiânia, Brazil.  He faced every challenge with an admirable level of strength, determination, and hopefulness, making him a shining example to everyone who knew him.  As a student in the University of Mississippi Intensive English Program, he was not only diligent, utilizing every opportunity to gain more knowledge, but he was also helpful and respectful to others no matter where they came from or how different their cultures were from his own.  He cherished his family, loved his friends, and welcomed everyone with a gracious smile.

New and prospective full-time IEP students are eligible to apply for this scholarship, and the scholarship is only valid for the semesters following it being awarded (e.g., awarded in summer and valid for fall-spring). In order to be eligible to receive the Jonatas Lima Memorial Scholarship, applicants must be at least 18 years old, meet regular admissions requirements to the IEP, and submit a complete application to the IEP (including application fee).

After being awarded the scholarship, recipients must maintain eligibility by: arriving on the University of Mississippi campus no later than the first day of classes in the semester for which the scholarship was awarded, maintaining an A average during studies in the IEP, and maintaining F1 status through full-time enrollment and regular attendance.

This scholarship is applicable to tuition and fees only—no other expenses (e.g., housing, insurance, books) are covered by this scholarship. Funds are credited directly to the students’ tuition and fees balance, and no money will be paid directly to students. In addition, total scholarships cannot exceed a student’s current balance (fees excluded), nor can the scholarship be held to the next semester.
