Get to Know TMCF: SCHOLARSHIPS

TMCF offers three types of unique scholarships that are merit, plus need-based designed to address the financial needs of students attending a TMCF member-school or other accredited college or university (if applicable). The awards process is highly competitive and is given to outstanding and qualified students who plan to earn a baccalaureate, graduate or law degree. The average award is $3,100 per student per semester. Most scholarships are one year, non-renewable unless otherwise indicated. Awards are given without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sex, disability or national origin.

SCHOLARSHIP TYPES:

Gap Completion Scholarship:
Designed to provide funding to close the financial gap for students that have an urgent financial need. A graduating senior at risk of not obtaining his or her degree due to outstanding fees receives first consideration for this scholarship.

Access Scholarship:
Covers tuition, fees and on-campus room and board for all classifications of students, giving them access to a college education.

Programmatic Scholarship:
Covers tuition, fees and on-campus room and board for all classifications of students, giving them access to a college education, as well as support services aimed at strengthening their leadership and professional development (e.g. student mentor).

 

 

Since its inception, hundreds of companies and foundations have funded a TMCF scholarship. Our scholarship partners allow TMCF to award scholarships that are designed to complement the financial aid students receive from other sources for tuition and other education expenses, such as books and housing. As a result of our efforts, an increasing number of students are able to attend and complete college at an affordable cost.
