The MxCC Cares Student Emergency Micro-Grant Program seeks to assist eligible students coping with an unexpected hardship so they may continue their education at Middlesex Community College. The goal is to help struggling students complete the semester successfully.
To be considered for a scholarship or award opportunity, a student must be a new or returning MxCC student who plans to register in the fall semester of the upcoming academic year. Note: Some scholarships are designated for students who will graduate in May from MxCC. Graduating students who plan to transfer to a four-year higher education institution are eligible to apply. All Middlesex Community College Foundation scholarships are made available to MxCC students from generous individuals, businesses, civic organizations, corporations, and income generated at special Foundation events. Annually, the application process begins in December of the fall semester, and culminates with the announcement of scholarship recipients near the end of the spring semester.

- A copy of your current MxCC transcript from Banner Self Service or high school transcript, if you are an entering student. If you are currently enrolled at MxCC and this is your first semester, you will need to ask all of your professors to complete a Mid-Term Grade Report for all classes in which you are enrolled, in place of a transcript. You may copy and paste this link, https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Mid-termGrades, into an email to your professors, which will allow them to submit the report electronically. When professors complete a Mid-Term Grade Report it is automatically transmitted to the scholarship application administrator.
- A double-spaced, typed essay (two-page maximum) describing why you should be considered for a scholarship, your goals, and what motivates you to succeed
- Scholarship recipients are expected to attend the Scholarship Awards Night near the end of the spring 2021 semester at a date to be determined.
In 2020, 86 scholarships totaling $82,200 were awarded to eligible students. This program depends upon donations from generous individuals, businesses, civic organizations, alumni, and charitable foundations, along with annual fundraising events such as the Red Moon Gala and the Cap and Gown 5K. Recipients are selected by the Foundation’s Scholarship Committee. For more information about the scholarship process, please contact Corey Martell at 860-343-5701.
