    How to Apply

    The 2018-19 MHCC Foundation scholarship application deadline has passed. The next scholarship application deadline will be announced in fall 2018.

    How to Prepare

    1. Apply for admission to MHCC
      The application is free and does not commit you to coming to MHCC. After you complete the application, you'll receive an email with instructions on how to log in to your account and check your student email, which is how we'll be communicating with you.
    2. Find two references
      References can be teachers, faculty, staff, mentors, coaches, employers, etc. You will need the name and email address of each reference for the scholarship application. Once you enter this information, the system with send an automated email to each reference with a recommendation form to complete. We highly recommend contacting your references in advance to ask if they are willing to provide a recommendation for you..
    3. Get a copy of your unofficial transcript (new students only)
      Only high school seniors and transfer students need to submit an unofficial transcript. Eventually transfer students will need to provide an official transcript to registration in order for credits to be applied to your official academic record.
    4. Complete the FAFSA
      Visit https://fafsa.ed.gov/ to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online and list the MHCC school code: 003204. You will still be considered for many MHCC Foundation scholarships even if you do not complete a FAFSA. However, completing the FAFSA may increase the number of scholarships you are eligible for.

    Who Can Apply

    Any MHCC student, or any student who plans to attend MHCC, can apply. We have scholarships for students in all kinds of programs, students of all ages and from all kinds of backgrounds.
