Paying for college just became a little bit easier for students in need of financial assistance, minorities and those facing significant obstacles to a higher education.

Those specific groups of undergraduate students can now apply for need-based scholarship funds from the EducationQuest Foundation through Mid-Plains Community College.

MPCC will be responsible for selecting the recipients. All scholarship money must be applied toward tuition, fees or books.

Headquartered in Lincoln, EducationQuest is a private nonprofit organization with a mission to improve access to higher education in Nebraska.

This marks the 23rd year that EducationQuest has awarded need-based scholarship funds to Nebraska colleges. Since the program began, the EducationQuest Scholarship Program has awarded over $27 million - providing 26,000 scholarships.

More information about the scholarships at MPCC and the application process is available through the college’s financial aid team at (308) 221-6444.
