MJC Scholarships


Apply  Now for fall 2019 and spring 2020 MJC Scholarships!

To qualify for scholarship consideration the following minimum criteria must be met:

  • Have a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or higher by the end of the fall 2018 semester
  • Have a minimum of 12 units completed by the end of the fall 2018 semester
  • Be a student in good standing at Modesto Junior College 
  • Must enroll or transfer as a full time student fall 2019
  • Declare a major
  • Submit a complete application for scholarships by the deadline (January 31, 2019) adhering carefully to all instructions and requirements

Thank you for making the decision to apply for scholarships at Modesto Junior College! We appreciate your interest.

Important: Before you begin the application carefully read through all the requirements and instructions below. Every year students are disqualified or receive low scores because instructions were not followed.

The most important aspect of the entire application is the essay. This is your story. We don't want a paragraph or a sentence or two, but a real college-level essay with an introduction, two or three supporting paragraphs and a conclusion.

Consider your essay to be a one-on-one meeting with the scholarship donor. Introduce yourself, sharing a little about you and your background. What are the obstacles in life (if any) that you overcame to get to this point in your journey? What is your major? Why did you select this major and why are you passionate about it? Many people select their major based on life experience so please tell us about that. And, finally, what are your future goals and plans as they pertain to this major? Where do you see yourself in the future? Some of the best essays are those that connect us to the real you. 

After writing your essay it is imperative that you proof read for mistakes and make sure your major and where you are going with it is clearly stated. Write thoughtfully and be genuine. Allow the real you and the passion for your future to shine through.

Recommendations are also important to the overall score of your application. All applicants are required to submit at least one recommendation from an instructor. When we review your academic transcript and see that you've done well in the classes that pertain to your major, we hope to see at least one or two recommendations from those instructors. Keep in mind that instructor recommendations carry the most points. Be mindful to ask the instructor in advance for his/her endorsement. Let them know ahead of time that he or she will receive an email request for an online endorsement directly from your Awardspring scholarship application. Recommendations from family, friends and co-workers are not acceptable. It is the responsibility of the student to make sure two recommendations are complete before the January 31, 2019 deadline. No exceptions!

Be mindful of the scholarship deadline - Thursday, January 31, 2019 at 5 p.m.!
Checklist for the application:
  • 2 instructor/faculty online recommendations (required)  Recommendations from family/friends and co-workers are not acceptable
  • A complete essay (introduction/supporting paragraphs/conclusion)
  • Uploaded MJC unofficial transcript after fall 2018 grades are posted (NO screen shots!)
  • All documentation is complete and uploaded by the deadline of January 31, 2019 at 5 p.m. - NO exceptions!
