MxCC Foundation Scholarship Applications Available Now for Returning Students, High School Students, and Others Seeking Affordable Higher Education
Individuals considering starting or continuing their education at Middlesex Community College may receive some help with the cost of attending college through the MxCC Foundation’s 2015 annual scholarship program. The Foundation announced today that scholarship applications, available for download at mxcc.edu, are being accepted now through March 1.
The scholarship application form requires students to submit a copy of a current transcript (from high school or MXCC) and two letters of recommendation on official letterhead. Applicants must also submit a typed essay explaining why they should be considered for a scholarship, how they define success, and how MxCC would help them achieve their goals. Complete submission requirements are detailed online and on the form.
Funds for the scholarships are raised throughout each year by the MxCC Foundation from generous individuals, businesses, civic organizations, corporations, and those looking to leave a legacy. Each award has its own purpose – to recognize academic performance, community involvement, or financial need. Winners are determined by the Foundation’s Selection Committee.
