Scholarship opportunity: "Students with an Impact"

Each spring semester, the Associated Students of Moorpark College (ASMC) has the privilege of awarding scholarships to fellow MC students! This year, ASMC awards the Students with an Impact Scholarship to MC students who enrich student life at Moorpark College with their commitment to excellence in academics, leadership, and campus involvement. A total of five (5) students will be awarded a scholarship of $1,000 each.

Please contact ASMC Director of Academic Affairs Simran Singh with any questions you may have about eligibility requirements (simran_singh1@my.vcccd.edu), or contact Maria Perez-Medeiros of the MC Scholarships Office if you have questions about the application process (mmedeiros@vcccd.edu).
