Scholarships deadline is approaching

College can get quite expensive, but for those who take the time and dedication, a scholarship can go a long way.Scholarships don’t just cover tuition, but program equipment, childcare expenses and textbooks as well.

The Financial Aid Department offers numerous scholarships, all of which vary in type and monetary award.

To obtain a scholarship application for the MATC Foundation Scholarships students can stop by Room S223 at the Downtown Milwaukee Campus, and ask about the Milwaukee Campus Scholarship Clearinghouse.

Another option is to download the application from the MATC website. It will be under Financial Aid, and then click on the scholarship link.

Once the application is obtained, the criteria for the scholarship should be read very carefully to ensure eligibility.

Most scholarships require at least a GPA ranging from 2.5 to 3.5, a specific amount of achieved credits at MATC and a letter of recommendation.

When filling out the application, a series of questions will be asked regarding your career goals, type of person you are or why the scholarship is important to you.

It is very important that the application is filled out as neatly as possible and in ink or typed. It is recommended to always re-read your application, check for spelling, grammatical and typographical errors.

Incomplete applications will not likely be considered, so it is important to make sure you have provided all the necessary information.

Lastly, make a copy for your own personal records.

If the scholarship requires you to have recommendations, they should be submitted with your application in a sealed envelope.

Unless otherwise stated, the completed form should be returned to the following address:

MATC Scholarship Clearinghouse
Downtown Milwaukee Campus
700 West State Street
Milwaukee, WI 53233-1433

The application deadline for the Spring 2010 semester is April 15th.
