 MCC Accepting Scholarship Applications

HOPKINS COUNTY, Ky.  (02/06/2015) – Applications are currently being accepted for over 22 scholarship opportunities available through Madisonville Community College (MCC). The complete listing of available scholarships, the MCC scholarship application form, and other submission guidelines can be found on MCC’s website at madisonville.kctcs.edu -- select Cost & Aid then click on Scholarship Opportunities. Scholarship application forms are also available from the MCC Financial Aid Office and from local high school guidance offices.

March 15 is the priority deadline; however, scholarship application packets are accepted throughout the year and retained on file for one academic year. Scholarships are awarded at various times during the year. Students are encouraged to submit a completed scholarship application even if they have missed the March 15th priority deadline.

Completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is required each year to be eligible for an MCC scholarship. The FAFSA can be completed at fafsa.gov and only takes approximately 15 minutes to complete. It will also show if qualifications have been met for other types of financial aid. Students selected for scholarships will receive notice from MCC’s financial aid office of the award and the amount. Award amounts vary annually. Scholarships are awarded for one academic year and are renewable for a second year if the student maintains eligibility and completes a new scholarship application.

To assist with the FAFSA and scholarship application completion process, MCC will be offering a FAFSA/Scholarship workshop on Tuesday, March 10, beginning at 6 pm in rooms 214 and 248 located on the second floor of the John H. Gray building (MCC North Campus, 2000 College Drive, Madisonville).

For new and returning MCC students, the workshop will cover:

• Completing the 2015-2016 FAFSA
• Completing the MCC Scholarship Application
• Learning about available scholarships
• Writing the scholarship essay
• Requesting a scholarship letter of recommendation
• Work Study Program • Admission process
• Programs offered

Students and parents/guardians should plan to attend this important financial aid workshop to find out how to get FREE money for college!
