Academic Scholarships

MCC is pleased to offer academic scholarships through funding approved by the Board of Governors. Academic Scholarships at MCC are awarded based on GPA. Most academic scholarships do not require a FAFSA. Funding is limited. Awards are made to students until funds are exhausted each year.

MCC Finish Strong Scholarship

The Finish Strong Scholarship is a generous scholarship program to help students return to MCC and finish their degree or certificate. Qualified students will be awarded up to $2000 per year. Actual amounts are determined by your GPA from your last attendance and how many credits you take when re-enrolling. Continued eligibility is reviewed at the end of each spring term. Qualified students can earn a scholarship, or a larger scholarship, for the upcoming year by achieving a higher GPA by the end of the spring term. The amounts presented below are yearly amounts and will be adjusted per semester based on actual enrollment.  For more information call 866-MOHAVECC and ask to speak with a college representative about the Finish Strong Scholarship, or email Advising@mohave.edu.

Scholarships for High School Graduates
Scholarships are made to Mohave County, AZ high school graduates based on unweighted GPA. Awards are typically made by April 15th. The exact date may change from year to year. Scholarship eligibility is evaluated in the student’s senior year of high school. Scholarship recipients must enroll at MCC no later than the academic year immediately following their high school graduation. Deferments to this time frame will be considered on a case-by-case basis. When a deferment is requested, the student must submit supporting documentation from the organization with which they’ll be involved during the deferment period. Approval is contingent, in part, upon the availability of funding for the year in which the student will enroll.

Resident Faculty Scholarships
Names of qualifying students are submitted to each Associate Dean for consideration and selection. Up to 25 scholarships are awarded each year. Students will need to submit a FAFSA to be eligible for the Resident Faculty Scholarship.
