Scholarships can play an important role in offsetting college expenses, but unfortunately too many students fail to apply because they believe they will not qualify.
Middlesex College Foundation Scholarships
The Middlesex College Foundation awards funding to over 450 students each year. Most students qualify for consideration for more than one scholarship. Our scholarships come from a variety of sources and donors, and are awarded based on very diverse eligibility criteria.
Middlesex College Foundation’s mission is to help students open doors to their future with financial aid, scholarships and educational resources. Our goal is to provide students with the opportunity to achieve their personal, academic and professional goals.
The Middlesex College Foundation offers over 150 different scholarship opportunities, with many awarded to multiple recipients. Don’t miss out on these tremendous resources.
Scholarship recipients represent the diversity of our county and span all majors – business, engineering, health and sciences, liberal arts, and more. Explore our scholarships and see for yourself.
Applying for a Middlesex College Foundation Scholarship
One scholarship application is the pathway to all available scholarships. The system will review your answers to determine all scholarships for which you qualify. Many scholarships have multiple awardees; however, please be aware that just because you qualify for a scholarship does not mean you will automatically be awarded. There are more applicants than there is funding.
Be sure to complete every question and provide thorough answers in any essay questions. The more detail you provide, the more application reviewers have to base their decision on.
Some scholarships have additional questions once you complete and submit your application. Please make sure to check your AwardSpring dashboard for any outstanding follow-ups. This ensures you are applied to every scholarship you are eligible for.
For information on applying, see the option below. A new scholarship cycle opens each fall. Students must reapply every academic year.
Fall Semester: Opens April 1; Closes June 15
Spring Semester: Opens October 1; Closes December 15
Note: Scholarships are awarded on a rolling basis, so it is most beneficial to apply early.
