CRYSTAL LAKE – McHenry County College is accepting registration for two scholarships that will be awarded to several students, including the Presidential Talent Scholarship and the Founding Faculty Scholarship.

The Presidential Scholarship, MCC’s most prestigious scholarship, is awarded each year to qualified high school seniors based on academic achievement, extracurricular activities and community involvement.

Recipients will receive a maximum of 60 credit hours of tuition (in district) at MCC, which is typically two years’ worth of tuition. Recipients are required to enroll in at least 12 credit hours each fall and spring semester, maintain at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA and complete 15 service hours each fall and spring semester.

The McHenry County College Founding Faculty scholarship is awarded in recognition of more than 30 years’ worth of contributions from retired founding faculty of McHenry County College. Three scholarships worth 60 tuition credit hours each at MCC will be awarded. Recipients must enroll in at least 12 credit hours each fall and spring semester and maintain at least a 2.5 cumulative GPA at MCC.

The deadline to apply for both of these scholarships is June 10. Applications are available at www.mchenry.edu/financialaid/scholarships or in the Financial Aid Office, Room A262 at McHenry County College, 8900 Route 14 in Crystal Lake.
