Each year, the MCC Foundation transfers hundreds of thousands of dollars
in scholarship aid to current and prospective MCC students. This is made
possible by caring MCC alumni, parents and friends, as well as generous
leaders of corporations and foundations, who support the MCC Annual
Fund and establish scholarships at MCC Foundation events.
Some MCC Foundation scholarships are general unrestricted funds, and
some are named in memory of members of our community. Others focus
on academic, co-curricular and leadership performance and programs.
Scholarships Put Higher Education Within Reach For Many
Nearly 65 percent of MCC’s students depend on financial aid in the form of
scholarships, grants or loans. A gift to the MCC Annual Fund helps students
who otherwise might not have the opportunity to attend or continue their
studies at MCC. MCC Foundation donors enable the college’s Financial Aid
Office to respond to a student’s individual financial needs with scholarship
support so he or she can attend MCC and continue their education.
