The Process

We know you want to breeze through the application,
but read this important information first!

Eligibility

Before applying, verify your eligibility at www.mcsf.org/eligibility/.

Application Process

  • Get started by registering for an account. Login/Register
  • All communication between us will be by e-mail. So keep an eye on that inbox!

    While we’re on the topic, you should know we occasionally send auto-emails to applicants – these emails are IMPORTANT as they’re often requesting documents or items regarding your application. You’ll have limited time to respond. That’s why it’s super important for you to add scholarship@mcsf.org and mcsf@scholarshipapps.org to your safe sender list and check your e-mail and SPAM folder daily!

  • Captain Obvious here – don’t forget to click the submit button! Your application cannot be reviewed if you don’t submit it! You’ll receive an e-mail confirming your submission; if you don’t receive an e-mail immediately following your submission then your application wasn’t successfully submitted. Once submitted, no further additions or changes can be made to your application.

Deadline

Applications must be submitted and complete with all required documentation by 11:59 p.m. Central Time on March 3, 2020. Applications that aren’t submitted won’t be reviewed. Submitting an application doesn’t guarantee you a scholarship award.

Notification

You’ll be notified of our award decision via e-mail by May 31 IF you submit an application. Applicants with incomplete or unsubmitted applications won’t be notified.

Important: We may e-mail you if we have questions about your application and you’ll have limited time to respond. Be sure to check your e-mail daily.

Award Acceptance and Payment of Scholarships

If awarded, you’re required to complete an Award Acceptance package before we mail your scholarship to your school. The award notification e-mail in May will have more information.
