As the COVID-19 crisis continued to unfold, it became clear that students had delayed decisions for the future, including whether to enroll in classes. At the same time, we saw the needs of our student body continuing to grow. In response, the Madison College Foundation reopened and extended the fall 2020 scholarship application until mid-June to ensure students had more time to apply for help as they navigate the realities of this pandemic.
Over 250 new applications came in during this extension. This brings the total number of applications to 760 for the fall 2020 semester, nearly double the number of applications normally seen for the fall semester application.
If you would like to help meet these needs, please consider a contribution to our Smart Future Scholarship fund today.
