MCCTC College Scholarship Opportunities

Scholarships are gifts. They don't need to be repaid. There are thousands of them, offered by schools, employers, individuals, private companies, nonprofits, communities, religious groups, and professional and social organizations. Some are based on academic achievements while others are based on financial need. A scholarship might cover the entire cost of your tuition, or it might be a one-time award of a few hundred dollars. Either way, it’s worth applying for, because it’ll help reduce the cost of your education. Please be aware of deadlines and requirements including letters of recommendation (give teachers 2 weeks to write a thorough letter of recommendation and complete the LOR form).

Scholarships, Grants, and Loans …. Where Do I Start?!

Search Engines/Websites for Scholarships

1.GoingMerry.com Personalized matches, bundled scholarships and recommendations, auto fill options.

2.Scholarships.com: The free scholarship search is one of the most established and robust, tracking a reported $19 billion in scholarships.

3. Fastweb.com: Fastweb, owned by parent company Monster.com, is also a free scholarship search provider that claims to have more than 1.5 million scholarships in its database.

5. Cappex.com: Cappex allows students to search both schools and scholarships, with a database of more than $11 billion in scholarships. A proprietary calculator also allows students to gauge their chances of getting into prospective schools with user-generated data.

6. JLV College Counseling: Jessica Velasco, a former admissions officer, started JLV College Counseling, which offers information on various scholarships. Velasco also posts scholarships every Saturday on her Facebook page with upcoming application deadlines. Via her blog, Velasco offers scholarships and college admissions tips and advice.

7. The College Board: The College Board’s comprehensive BigFuture site helps students look up information about colleges and how to pay for school.

8. Niche.com:. Niche pairs students with the scholarships that match their qualifications, with student-friendly categories like no-essay scholarships.

9. Your high school website, MCCTC and Home School: Don’t overlook your own high school’s website, which may have a list of local scholarships. These come out in January via the MCCTC Guidance Google Classroom!

10. Community foundation website: Like your high school website, families should check local community foundations' websites, which may also host a list of area scholarships.

11. College websites where you’re applying: Although not all schools award merit-based scholarships, those that do are very valuable because they’ll likely renew all four years. But the process for giving out scholarship money varies from school to school. You should also check the department of the major you’re considering, which may have its own scholarships and process for awarding them.
