(On occasion, students from other than Mennonite colleges/universities have also participated.) The student receives a $500 cash stipend from the congregation where the student is located and a $2,000 scholarship that comes from the Mennonite college/university where the student is attending, area conferences, the student’s home congregation and Mennonite Church USA Executive Leadership. Since its inception in the late 1980s, more than 300 students have participated in MIP.
