EDISON, NJ - A merit-based scholarship program designed to help students start or return to complete an Associate Degree is being offered at Middlesex County College. Called the Presidential Scholars, the program was established by the College Foundation.

“We’re hoping to encourage talented people who – for one reason or another – have not yet started college, or have been away for a while,” said Pamela Hedberg, MCC’s scholarship specialist. “The scholarship covers the cost of 50 percent of tuition, fees and books.”

The program is aimed at those who have been out of high school for at least 12 months. They may be full-or part-time students, with a minimum of 6 credits per  semester. The scholarship amount is determined after financial aid is factored in, and depends on the cost of books.
