The MJC Scholarship Application for fall 2022 & spring 2023 is available online! The deadline for this application is January 31, 2022!
Before you begin the application for 2022-2023 scholarships at MJC, please read the information below. The deadline to apply and complete all sections of the online application, including online recommendations, is January 31, 2022!
The minimum cumulative GPA to apply is 2.5, many donors require cumulative GPAs higher than a 3.0.
The majority of scholarships require full-time enrollment (12 units); students actively enrolled in the MJC Nursing Program and Respiratory Therapy Program are exempt from the 12 unit requirement for scholarship purposes only.
Students must have a declared major. Your major will be one of the most important components of your essay.
Your essay should be college level, meaning we are looking for an introduction, supporting paragraphs and a conclusion. The content should be clear and concise; who are you, what is your major, why are you passionate about your chosen major and what are your goals as they pertain to your major. Remember, the scholarship committee, departments and donors are reading hundreds and hundreds of essays so stay on track and simply tell us your story. You may write your essay in word, making sure to proofread, and copy/paste to the essay module of the application.
Recommendations: Students are required to submit 2 online recommendation forms: one must be from an instructor, the other can be from one of the following; school official, coach or counselor. You can use an employer only if the employment can be connected to your major. DO NOT use family, friends, mentors and co-workers. The recommendation form is something you will access once you begin the application. Do not ask a day before the deadline for a recommendation. Be courteous and ask in advance.
Scan and upload a copy (PDF only) of your unofficial transcript after fall 2021 grades have been posted. You can access your unofficial transcript through your Pirates Net account.
At least one week before the application deadline (January 31, 2022) double-check to make sure both recommendations are complete and no longer pending. That is the responsibility of the student, not the recommender.
