Online Scholarship Application
The Moraine Park Foundation was established to help students lower the cost of their education through scholarship assistance. Foundation scholarships are funded by generous gifts from alumni, Moraine Park faculty and staff, businesses, service clubs, and friends of the College who believe in higher education and who are passionate about making Moraine Park Technical College affordable for students. Unlike some forms of financial aid, scholarships do not have to be repaid.
To be considered for a Foundation scholarship, you must have an MPTC cumulative or high school GPA of 2.75 or higher and enroll in a minimum of 6 credits per semester. Annual scholarship awards range from $250 to $3,500.
The information you provide in this application will be reviewed by the Moraine Park Foundation Scholarship Committee. Measurements that may be considered for awarding scholarships include academic and career goals, demonstrated financial need, academic standing, and leadership/community service experience.
It is very important that the information you provide be as accurate as possible. If selected, you may be asked to provide documentation validating your qualification(s) for the award. The documentation must be submitted prior to the release of the scholarship funds.
