“Scholarships are taking the financial pressure off of myself and my family—allowing me to focus on my coursework and my education. Plus, through the McIlwaine Master Class, I had the unique opportunity to perform for a world renowned concert pianist and hear his critiques of my playing. This experience is something that I would not have had otherwise and is a unique and valuable part of my education.”
Student Learning Experiences
Encourage greater participation in quality student learning experiences to further academic engagement and practical understanding of classroom study.
At Millersville, there are many opportunities for Student Learning Experiences including Internships, Undergraduate Research, Global Education and Living-Learning Communities. Each of these areas of focus ensure that students contribute positively to contemporary and future workplaces and communities.
Proven outcomes for Student Learning Experiences include greater connectivity to the University, higher academic achievement, advanced analytical and writing skills and greater preparedness for employment and global citizenship. Additionally, studies have confirmed that these high impact practices boost overall retention and graduation rates
of lower-income and first-generation students. Increased private funding for these hands-on learning opportunities will ensure that Millersville students participate in research activities, gain first-hand work experiences and explore the world.
