Intelligent Choice Scholarship
The Intelligent Choice Scholarship is awarded to one student per year from each of the three high schools in Mayland's service area - Mitchell High School, Avery High School, and Mountain Heritage High School. The scholarship is awarded to a student attending Mayland who has graduated in the top ten percent of his/her class. There is no application process; the Mayland Community College Foundation works with each school to identify those students who meet the criteria and students are notified by mail of their selection. The Intelligent Choice Scholarship is a one time $1,000 scholarship which is awarded in recognition of the recipients' outstanding academic achievements, and because, in choosing Mayland Community College, they have made the "intelligent choice."
