MCC announces scholarship awards for 2020-2021

Montcalm Community College and the MCC Foundation are offering more than $388,000 in scholarship and aid for the 2020-2021 academic year.

More than 50 endowed scholarship funds provide awards to support students as they pursue their degrees and certificates at MCC. The Allen and Ellen Kohn Scholarship Fund, as well as the David W. Drake Scholarship Fund were established in the past year to support MCC students.

“The MCC Foundation supports the college in its mission of enhancing our learning community,” said Executive Director for Institutional Advancement and the MCCF Lisa Lund. “These scholarship funds honor our donors and their loved ones to help positively impact our students’ success.”    

While the MCCF was unable to hold its annual scholarship celebration event due to health precautions, activities to recognize student scholarship recipients and to thank generous donors are being planned for later this year. MCC’s 2020-2021 scholarship recipients include:
