Scholarships & Discounts


Given the non-profit nature of the MSL and since our enrollment fee is low relative to the level of service we provide, only a limited range of scholarships and discounts are available. We have created several discounts that pass along savings from efficiencies in enrollment—such as by enrolling schools early in the registration period or for multiple data collections.

The amount of the discount depends on the specific MSL package you are purchasing.

Early Enrollment Discount

For schools that enroll and pay by credit card by May 31, 2011.

For schools that enroll and pay by credit card by June 30, 2011.


For schools with financial constraints that would otherwise prevent them for participating, MSL offers a limited number of need-based scholarships. The number and dollar amounts are not fixed since the study team is always looking for funding for scholarships.  Scholarships are not typically awarded for the full enrollment price, but in the form of discounts. Most scholarships are awarded in the amounts of $500, $1,000, or $1,500.
