Announcing the Mount Tamalpais College Alumni Scholarship

By Mount Tamalpais College | February 15, 2022

We’re pleased to introduce the Mount Tamalpais College Alumni Scholarship Program!

This program will provide scholarships and other support to MTC alumni who are interested in pursuing further education. The scholarship program will be administered by 10,000 Degrees, an organization that administers scholarships and provides college advising. Their mission is to achieve educational equity and support students from low-income backgrounds to and through college to positively impact their communities and the world. We’re proud to partner with them to connect MTC alumni to valuable support.

Interested in learning more? Please see the Frequently Asked Questions and applications details here.

10,000 Degrees is currently accepting applications from eligible MTC alumni. The priority deadline to apply is March 2, 2022, however, the application will be left open until all scholarship funds are distributed. The first round of funds will be awarded for the Fall 2022 semester.

We are excited to grow this program in the years to come and to support MTC alumni throughout their education journey.
