Scholarships

Maysville Community and Technical College is able to offer a variety of scholarships to deserving students thanks to the many generous businesses, organizations and individuals who have made gifts to MCTC expressly for this purpose. Scholarships are a great source of aid because they are considered a gift and do not have to be repaid; therefore, we strongly encourage you to apply.

Scholarships at MCTC are limited and can vary significantly in the amount awarded, as well as in the eligibility criteria. Please keep in mind that not all applicants receive awards, however, you will never know unless you try!
