The Fund for Student Success provided by The Wegman Family Charitable Foundation

Funded by The Wegman Family Charitable Foundation, MCC students who face food, housing, child care and transportation challenges that impede academic performance and create obstacles that threaten their ability to earn a degree should submit a confidential application for assistance from The Fund for Student Success. Award amounts vary depending on need. Eligible students should discuss in written form challenges that they and their immediate family currently face or anticipate facing in the future. Students must be willing to meet with a trained professional who is able to provide support and guidance to help address their needs. The goal of The Fund for Student Success is to complement other resources and ensure students successfully complete their education at MCC.
