MCC Foundation Scholarship
Spring 2022 Scholarship Application is now OPEN
MCC Foundation scholarships include both endowed scholarships and in-house scholarships. Endowed scholarships begin with a gift of $10,000 or more, which is invested. Scholarships are given based on a percentage of the interest earned from the endowment. In-house scholarships are annual scholarship donations to the MCC Foundation that go directly to the scholarship recipients and are not endowed.
Awards are competitive, based on criteria established by the donors of each scholarship. The Mayland Community College Scholarship Committee, made up of MCC faculty and staff, reviews applications and selects recipients. The MCC Foundation awards scholarships without regard to race, creed, religion, color, ancestry, marital status, sexual orientation, national origin, or physical disability.
NEW! This year, MCC Scholarships will be applied through a software system called AwardSpring. Students only need to fill out one application to apply for all MCC Foundation Scholarships. All scholarship related correspondence will go through AwardSpring, including the application, award letters, and thank you notes. You may save your application and come back to complete it by logging into your AwardSpring account. Within AwardSpring you can also see a list of the scholarships and their requirements.
