Students attending Monroe County Community College for the Winter 2021 semester have a unique opportunity to receive tuition and other assistance through a special supplemental scholarship program being provided by The Foundation at MCCC.
An additional scholarship application period will be open from October 1 – October 30. During this time students can apply for assistance with tuition, and in many cases fees and books, too, for courses taken during the upcoming Winter 2021 semester that begins January 8.
“The application process is entirely online and students only have to complete one application for dozens of available scholarships,” said Dr. Valerie Culler, director of financial aid.
“After a student has applied for admission to the college and completed the FAFSA, they should visit www.monroeccc.edu/scholarships where they will find a link to Winter 2021 Supplemental Scholarships.” The staff of the Financial Aid Office are also available to assist students with completing the FAFSA or to answer any questions students have, added Culler. For more information visit www.monroeccc.edu/financial-aid or call 734-384-4135.
“With students still adjusting to a predominantly online or blended learning environment, and many still feeling the financial effects of COVID-19 on their family budgets, we know students are struggling with really difficult decisions about their future” said Dr. Joshua W. Myers, executive director of The Foundation at Monroe County Community College. “The Board of Directors of The Foundation recognized an opportunity to respond swiftly and make available over $90,000 in scholarship and emergency aid for this effort to help students continue to persist and achieve their higher education goals.”
Registration for the Winter 2021 semester begins November 5. For more information visit www.monroeccc.edu/registration.
