ASAP Scholarship

ASAP Scholarship

MCC is pleased to be able to offer the ASAP Scholarship again for the 2020-21 year. This Academic Success and Professional Development (ASAP) program, with a focus on (but not limited to) Motivated Engineering Transfer Students (METS), is made possible by a grant through Arizona State University (ASU) and is supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF).

The scholarship provides recipients with awards of up to $4000 per year ($2000 per semester, excluding summer) to help pay for tuition and fees at MCC. Students may receive a maximum total of $6000 during their time at MCC.


Eligibility for new Awards and Renewals

  • Meet all general scholarship requirements as defined by MCC
  • Demonstrate financial need as determined by the Financial Aid Office
  • Declared in one of the following academic programs:
    • AS Computer Science
    • AS Engineering
    • Life Science
    • Math
    • Chemistry
  • Enrolled in a minimum of 12 financial aid eligible credits per semester
  • 3.0 minimum cumulative GPA at MCC

    Recipient Selection and Responsibilities

    Recipients are selected based on their GPA, enrollment, academic program, and financial need.

    All recipients will be required to attend one MCC sponsored trip to ASU, or an online presentation sponsored by ASU, to learn about transfer opportunities. It is strongly recommended that applicants participate in this trip, or online event, when they first receive the scholarship.

    MCC is required to report post-graduation educational and employment pursuits of recipients. Scholarship recipients will be contacted by the grant administrator to collect this information and are required to maintain updated contact information with MCC.  


    * Funding for the ASAP-METS Scholarship is limited. Receipt of an ASAP-METS Scholarship does not guarantee acceptance to ASU Ira A. Fulton School of Engineering but could lead to receiving additional transfer scholarships at ASU. Demographic information of recipients will be reported to ASU as per ASF-DUE grant stipulations.
