University of Mary Hardin-Baylor
Belton, United States - Texas



   

University description (as per official university website)

History

The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor traces its distinguished history to the days when Texas had yet to gain statehood and when Baptist missionary work was just beginning in the partially civilized new territory. As early as 1839, representatives of churches in Washington County issued an appeal to the Home Mission Board of New York to inaugurate a missionary movement in Texas. Missionaries Rev. James Huckins and Rev. William M. Tryon were sent, and soon after, Judge R.E.B. Baylor came to Texas as a teacher, lawyer, soldier and preacher. These leaders inspired the desire for Christian education in the area and, at a meeting of the Union Association in 1841, recommended forming an education society. War prevented action until 1843, when the Texas Baptist Education Society was organized.

Tryon and Baylor were appointed to prepare a charter to establish a Baptist university. On February 1, 1845, a charter was granted by the 9th Congress of the Republic of Texas, approved by President Anson Jones at Washington-on-the-Brazos, and the long awaited Baptist university became a reality.

The school initially included a Preparatory Division in addition to co-educational classes for college students. In 1851, under the same charter, a Female Department and a Male Department were created, ending co-education. In 1866, the Female Department obtained a separate charter and its own board of trustees.

Financial Aid Information

The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor makes available a broad range of financial assistance to worthy and qualified students. Most financial aid is awarded in accordance with demonstrated need for assistance, as determined by use of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Certain University scholarships are awarded upon the basis of excellence in academics or proficiency in a particular field of study or activity.

All financial aid is granted for no more than a nine-month academic period. Financial aid is renewable each year, upon reapplication, if the student is in good academic standing. Possible changes in the amount of aid for each succeeding year may occur because of changes in funding levels and applicants' financial data.
