Entering transfer students for the Spring of 2018 with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher are invited to compete in MC's Transfer Scholarship Competition. A select number of students will be chosen for additional scholarships based upon an interview and submission of the items listed below.
The Transfer Scholarship Competition for those entering in Spring 2018 will be held on Friday, November 17th. Interviews will be conducted every 30 minutes throughout the day. Business attire is requested.
Interviewees are evaluated based upon an interview with an admissions panel and their submission of a resume and written essay. Interviews are conducted in a panel format, with 3-4 students interviewing at one time. Scores from each area are calculated to determine the top winners.
In order to interview for additional scholarships, students must register online for their desired interview date. Interview time preference may be given, and we will do our best to accommodate. Your interview time will be assigned after you register and you will be notified shortly thereafter.
Students must complete the following in order to be eligible for additional awards:
Resumes and essay responses should be submitted to Renee' Hood in the Office of Admissions by email: firstname.lastname@example.org. All items are due on Friday, November 10th at 4:30 p.m.
After students are evaluated on all competition criteria, a select number of students will receive the Trustee Scholarship in the amount of $10,000 per year ($5,000 if off campus), the Distinction Scholarship in the amount of $5,000 per year ($2,500 if off campus), or the Transfer Scholarship with Honors in the amount of $3,000 per year ($1,500 if off campus).
There are a limited number of these top tier awards, however, everyone who attends the interview competition who does not receive one of the top awards will receive an additional $1,000 per year ($500 if off campus) to their base award offer. These same students may also receive up to $2,000 in stackable scholarships if the criteria is met.
*Trustee Scholars not eligible for stackable scholarships.
**Trustee, Distinction, and Honors scholarships are only awarded to students over 4-6 consecutive semesters, depending upon the classification of the student when they enroll.
You must register for an interview time in order to participate in the Transfer Scholarship Competition. Once we receive your registration, we'll send you a confirmation letter with your interview time.
