Where do scholarships come from?

Individuals and businesses in the community make contributions to the MCCC Foundation to establish scholarships that support a special purpose, honor someone, recognize an achievement, or remember a loved one through a memorial fund.

Each year, the Foundation itself hosts two major fundraising events for student scholarships: the annual Spring Into Student Success! proceeds benefit the General Scholarship Fund, and the annual Golf Classic proceeds support athletic scholarships.

What scholarships are available?

The MCCC Foundation offers a variety of scholarships and awards that become available regularly. Our online MCCC Foundation Scholarships application manages all available Foundation scholarships. See "How to Apply" on the college's Scholarships page.

How do I apply for a scholarship?

Follow the steps under "How to Apply" on the college's Scholarships page, where you'll access our online MCCC Foundation Scholarships application. For further assistance, call (609) 570-3607 or e-mail scholarships@mccc.edu.

Is there a deadline for applying?

The application period for MCCC Foundation Scholarships begins on February 15, 2016.
  • Graduating students may apply online February 15 through April 1
  • New and Continuing students may apply online February 15 through September 1
Scholarships are awarded throughout the application period, so it is wise to apply as early as possible.

Who decides the awarding of scholarships?

Some MCCC Foundation Scholarships have a review committee comprised of faculty and academic departments that select recipients at the request of the donors. Other scholarships are awarded based on scholarship critieria.

When and how will I be notified if selected for a scholarship?

If selected, Graduating Student Scholarship recipients will be notified by mid-May. All other scholarship recipients will be notified as awardees are selected.

When are financial awards allocated to students?

Scholarship awards for new and continuing students will apply toward the upcoming Fall and Spring semesters. Reallocations are made in January, provided the recipient continues to meet the specific scholarship criteria (achieving required grades, minimum credit enrollment, etc.).

Are scholarship recipients recognized publicly?

Yes.

Graduating Student Scholarship recipients are recognized at the annual Honors Convocation, held prior to MCCC Commencement ceremonies each May.

All other scholarship recipients are recognized at the Honors Recognition Reception, held annually in October.

Additionally, student recipients of scholarships specific to the James Kerney Campus in Trenton are recognized at the Celebration of Academic Achievement, held annually in May.
