    ~ Malcolm X

    The Macedonia Higher Education Assistance Program (MHEAP) was established by the Board of Christian Education to provide financial assistance and encouragement to our members seeking post-secondary education.  MHEAP is given annually to active youth members of Macedonia Baptist Church who are carrying a course load of 9 or more credits for the fall and spring semesters and are matriculated undergraduate students at a four or two-year college, university, technical or vocational school.  Students must submit a copy of their course registration by September 30th and a copy of their second-semester course registration by January 30th.  Participation in this program shall not exceed four years or the designated amount of the award.

    Eligibility Criteria 

    To be eligible for the MHEAP applicant must: 

    1. Be an active youth member of Macedonia Baptist Church;
    2. Be a high school graduate or a student preparing to graduate (GED is acceptable); or presently attending college, technical or vocational school at any undergraduate level; and
    3. Submit a copy of your acceptance letter from the higher education institution (if you are a first-time higher education student or have transferred to another institution).
