Scholarships Available!

Scholarships are a great way to help pay for college. The MATC Foundation awards scholarships based on academic merit, leadership/participation, financial need or any combination of these.

Our scholarship programs include:

The MATC Foundation strives to help as many students as we can through scholarships, but we receive more scholarship applications than we have funds to award. No student is guaranteed a scholarship.

Financial Aid Assistance

MATC assists students to pay education-related expenses by awarding financial aid through loans, grants, work study programs and other aid available from federal, state, and private resources.

Filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is a critical first step to receiving federal aid for each academic year. 

Because FAFSA funds are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis, you should complete the form as soon as possible. 

The MATC Financial Aid office can help you complete the FAFSA. No registration is required and bilingual assistance available.
