CSMP Scholarship

In Fall 2018, MCC will offer National Science Foundation Scholarships to qualified students enrolled in computer science, mathematics and physics programs.

These scholarships give academically talented but financially needy students the opportunity to complete an undergraduate degree in any of those programs. In addition to financial aid and academic and research opportunities, students receive additional benefits including mentoring, tutoring, invitations to social events, internships and assistance with job placement.
