Mesa Community College scholarship gets new eligibility requirements

Mesa Community College has introduced new eligibility requirements for its President’s Honors Scholarship, according to a press release.

The scholarship will be available to students who graduate in the top 20 percent of their high school class or complete high school with a GPA of 3.0 or above, successfully test into MCC’s honors program and enroll within two academic semesters following high school graduation, according to the release.

The President’s Honors Scholarship covers in-state/in-county tuition for up to 15 credit hours for four consecutive semesters, according to the release. To retain the scholarship students must maintain a 3.25 GPA and be enrolled full-time.

“The availability of this scholarship makes it possible for a student to obtain a two-year degree at virtually no cost,” Kathleen Perales, associate dean of student affairs, said in the release. “Student success is our goal. We work with students on an individual basis to determine the best pathway to success.”
