Bursaries & Scholarships
MCC Bursary Application
The financial assistance offered is provided by various individuals, families, and churches in memory of a loved one or for the basis of preparing believers for works of service. It is their desire, as well as ours, to see the students of MCC complete their education with little to no debt.
Recipients must be of good Christian character and conduct, and exhibit the traits of diligence and sincerity. Bursaries are decided by a faculty committee on a semester basis. If enrolled for two semesters in a school year bursaries are renewable for second semester pending a satisfactory review by the faculty committee (to determine if qualifications and grades are satisfactory to the standard of the school – for example passing all courses and obtaining the required GPA).
Bursaries are available for full-time and part-time students. Bursaries will be awarded based on financial need and on a first-come, first-served basis (unless otherwise specified by the individual bursary qualifications).
Applications for September enrollment must be received by August 15
Applications for January enrollment must be received by December 15
Application for May enrollment must be received by April 15
(Only one application is needed per school year for all bursaries)
