MWCC Awarded $50,000 Grant to Support Student Scholarship Program

Mount Wachusett Community College has been awarded a $50,000 grant from the Community Foundation of North Central Massachusetts to support a new scholarship program for students. This grant comes from the Community Foundation's General Endowment Education Access Fund, and will specifically support MWCC's "Career Focused Education Scholarship Program."


The scholarship partnership between MWCC and the Community Foundation will support students enrolled in Advanced Manufacturing, Biotechnology, Certified Nursing Assistant, or Emergency Medical Technician programs. To qualify, students must live in North Central Massachusetts, demonstrate financial need, and be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident. Award amounts will vary.


"We are most grateful to the Community Foundation for this award to support students as they pursue their academic and career goals," said MWCC President Daniel M. Asquino. "Because the vast majority of our students remain in the area after graduating to live and work, this funding ultimately helps strengthen our local communities as well as the economic vitality of our region."
