Student financial aid is one of the key categories of support provided by the McCook College Foundation to students attending McCook Community College. The Foundation has established board-designated scholarships ranging from $250 to $2,000 which are awarded to full and part-time students.
All approved MCC courses of study qualify, and traditional, non-traditional, new, or continuing students are encouraged to apply by the March 1, 2019 priority deadline for academic year 2019-2020.
Students must submit the foundation scholarship application and essay, along with an official copy of either their most recent high school or college transcript, and an admissions application must be on file with MCC. Selection is based on financial need, consideration of school and/or community activity, student motivation, and academic achievement.
The Foundation's student financial aid committee reviews, applications and selects recipients, and will send notification of awards.
Applications can be obtained by calling the Foundation at 308-345-5233 or stopping by the office at 206 E. First Street; the Student Financial Aid Office at McCook Community College, 1205 E. Third in McCook; or on the Foundation web site at mccookcollegefoundation.org
Please remember that completed applications should be returned to the Foundation office by the March 1, 2019 priority deadline.
Applications may be submitted after this March 1 deadline up through Aug. 1 and scholarships may be awarded if funds are available.
