To be considered for a scholarship or award opportunity, a student must be a new or returning Middlesex student who plans to register in the fall semester of the upcoming academic year. Note: Some scholarships are designated for students who will graduate from Middlesex in May. Graduating students who plan to transfer to a four-year higher education institution are eligible to apply. All Middlesex Community College Foundation scholarships are made available to Middlesex students from generous individuals, businesses, civic organizations, corporations, and income generated at special Foundation events. Annually, the application process begins in December of the fall semester, and culminates with the announcement of scholarship recipients near the end of the spring semester.
