MCU’s scholarship program consists of a total of thirty-five (35) grants – thirty-three (33) $1,000 grants and two (2) $5,000 Memorial grants honoring Charles Faulding a nd Julian I. Garfield, former MCU board members. To be eligible, students must be high school seniors attending college for the first time, be a member himself or herself, or a child or grandchild of an MCU member in good standing.
Applicants will be judged based on their academic performance, extracurricular and community activities, an essay question and a teacher’s reference.
