Cycle 1 scholarship application window opens

North Central has issued a call for Cycle 1 scholarship applications for funds to be awarded during the Fall 2022 and Winter 2023 semesters.  Cycle 1 applications will be accepted through August 15.  The scholarship application is available on the college's website.

The college awarded nearly $500,000 in scholarships during the 2020-21 academic year.

“Each scholarship helps bring a student’s dream of a college degree within reach,” said Chelsea Platte, vice president for advancement and executive director of the NCMC Foundation.  “We are grateful to our generous donors, who recognize that investing in a student’s potential is truly life-changing—for both the student and the donor.”

NCMC announces new scholarship opportunity for high school seniors

North Central has also added a new scholarship opportunity: the Tip of the Mitt Scholars Program.

The result of a partnership between North Central and the Meijer Foundation, the Tip of the Mitt Scholarship is intended for first-generation college students who will graduate high school with a 2.5 or higher GPA.

“This is an excellent opportunity for high school students who are unsure if they want to attend college or whether they can afford it,” Platte said.  “North Central and the Meijer Foundation want to help eliminate the financial barrier to a college degree and provide students with resources for success.”

The scholarship covers two years (four consecutive semesters) at North Central or completion of an associate degree or certificate program, whichever comes first.  It includes tuition (up to 20 contact hours per semester), mandatory fees, and books purchased through North Central’s College Bookstore.  Qualifying students must enroll at North Central for the fall semester immediately following their high school graduation and commit to participating in a Student Success Program designed to provide them with dedicated support services to increase academic success. 

Applications for the Tip of the Mitt Scholarship are due April 15, and completion of the FAFSA is required.  For more information or to apply, visit the college's website.
