External philanthropies, such as the Knights of Ak-Sar-Ben, establish MCCF-held or external scholarship funds to support students who are choosing to attend MCC. Often, these entities wish for MCC to match the scholarships in some way to maximize their support. Established in 2015, the MCCF Scholarship Matching Fund will enable MCC to apply matching funds directly onto the accounts of MCC students who have been selected to receive these scholarships in accordance with scholarship-specific agreements on file at MCCF. This fund supports student tuition, fees, books, tools/uniforms/equipment and, occasionally, overall cost of attendance, in accordance with scholarship agreements.
Scholarships are usually offered during the spring and fall quarters. Scholarship availability varies depending on donor giving.
