MCC has many scholarship opportunities for students. To find out what scholarships you may qualify for, search the MCC Scholarship Search database. First consideration is given to applications received on or before April 1.

Scholarship search

The easiest way to find out which MCC scholarships you may qualify for is to use the online Scholarship Search. You will be asked a series of questions and based on your answers, a list of possibilities will be returned to you.

NOTE: These scholarships are for students who will have completed a high school degree or equivalent before starting the next academic term. If you are a high school student taking college classes, talk with your high school counselors about any possible scholarship opportunities.
