Midland College continues to award over $1 million in scholarships
MIDLAND, Texas (KOSA) – Due to the many donor-directed scholarships, Midland College awards more than $1 million in scholarships each year. Last year, the college awarded $1.4 million to students, including recent high school graduates and older students, many of whom are learning new job skills or upgrading their existing ones.
“Midland College has been awarding scholarships for many years,” said MC President Dr. Steve Thomas. “We have wonderful donors who know that students will receive a quality education at Midland College, and they want to help our students achieve their college goals and career dreams.”
For the upcoming 2022-2023 academic year, MC will award the Jones Presidential Scholarship, a special scholarship awarded to ten 2022 high school graduates who have at least a 2.5 GPA and show strong leadership potential, as evidenced by an essay and letters from recommendation. The amount of the scholarship is $5,000 per year for a maximum of two years.
“The Marion and Jan Jones Endowment Scholarship also funds many other students, both recent high school graduates and non-traditional students,” said Erin Casey-Richardson, Director of MC Scholarships. “In fact, Midland College offers many donor-directed scholarships that require no consideration of family income. As long as students have a 2.5 GPA and can maintain a 2.5 GPA (C+ average), they will receive a scholarship while attending MC. All they have to do is complete the FAFSA 2022 [Free Application for Federal Student Aid], complete the MC application and register, and complete the simple MC scholarship application online. We know how hard it is to pay for college, especially in these times. We are here to help.”
Casey-Richardson explained that students who have registered and completed the FAFSA and MC Scholarship Application by July 1, 2022 will receive priority consideration for the 2022-2023 academic year. Students should go ahead and complete the 2022-2023 FAFSA now. Registration for the fall semester begins on April 4, and the online MC Scholarship application will be available on May 16.
