Like grants, scholarships do not need to be repaid. Scholarships are not awarded based upon financial need; instead, scholarships are based upon your academic performance and conduct. Outstanding student scholars may be awarded one scholarship each semester at MacCormac College. Scholarships are not automatically renewable. Ongoing scholarships are renewable, providing that the student submits a completed scholarship application no later than the 15th day of month prior to the start of each semester and continues to fulfill the eligibility requirements. MacCormac College may withhold scholarship aid if a student fails to maintain established academic and conduct standards, or fails to submit a completed application by the deadline established.
