Scholarships are available to help you pay for college and may be awarded to recognize academic or other achievements.

To be eligible for institutional scholarships you must have completed high school or have a GED and you must be working on a degree, diploma, or certificate program. Institutional scholarships are guaranteed if your application is received by March 15. Applications must submitted each year. 


3.8+ 25+ Presidential Scholarship - 100%
3.5-3.79 23-24 Vice Presidential Scholarship - 75%
3.25-3.49 21-22 Dean's Scholarship - 50%

*This dollar amount is based on the cost of 30 credits for in-state resident.

Scholarships only pay for tuition. The student is responsible for fees ($16 per credit hour).

Percentages are based on 15 credits of tuition per semester or 30 credits per year.

Applicants who do not qualify for guaranteed scholarships are still eligible for program specific and other special scholarships.

Recipients of multiple institutional scholarships intended to be used for the same purpose (i.e. tuition and fees) will be awarded the scholarship that is most beneficial. Scholarships intended for the same purpose cannot be stacked. 


All students must apply for Admission to MPCC. You will have access to the MPCC Scholarship Application through your MyMPCC apps (or by following the link above) after you have received your login information.

Most scholarships are awarded for the academic year. You must meet the terms of the scholarship during the fall semester to keep the scholarship for the spring. Scholarship selection will be made by the scholarship committee unless otherwise stipulated.
