NEW STUDENT: Wentworth Family Endowed Scholarship

The Wentworth Family Scholarship was established by Timothy ’80 and Robin ’80 Wentworth to provide a cohort of deserving students with scholarship support while pursuing their education and career goals at MCC. Candidates should show a demonstrated financial need (through completion of the FAFSA) and academic promise (through above average academic performance). The Wentworth Family Scholarship can be used toward any cost of education expense. The award amount can vary but is expected to cover the cost of full-time tuition and, with continued eligibility, will be renewable for a second year. Wentworth Scholars will be supported by a dedicated counselor, invited to participate in Honors courses and opportunities for summer jobs and internships may be available.


1. Incoming, first-year MCC student.
2. Full-time student (minimum of 12 credits).
3. Minimum GPA 3.0 (HS or MCC).
4. Preference given for demonstrated financial need.

$3,000 ($1,500/Semester)

Supplemental Questions
  1. Do you plan to attend MCC full-time next semester?
  2. Do you have a high school or incoming GPA of 3.0 or better?
  3. Please attach an essay of no more than two typed pages of why you are requesting the funds. You should include how this scholarship will directly impact you and the unique challenge you face (such as loss of employment; family hardships, lack of family support; learning disability; returning adult student; working and going to school full time; childcare; etc…). Provide information that we cannot get from your FAFSA, and that you feel will separate your application from other candidates.
