SCHOLARSHIP INFORMATION IN THE LIBRARY

Did you know that there are over 40 scholarships available to Moorpark College students?  They range from $250 to $2500 and applications can be picked up in the Scholarship Office, Fountain Hall 210C.  You can also apply online at:

https://moorparkcollege.scholarships.ngwebsolutions.com/CMXAdmin/Cmx_Content.aspx?cpId=922

But before you apply, check out the range of scholarships on the east side of the display case just inside Library Learning Resources (LLR).  You'll find a flyer displayed for each scholarship, and some of them give detailed information on the criteria needed to apply.  Many are available to students transferring to a 4-year college or university in Fall 2016, as well as to continuing students at MC.

Do you need to write an essay?  What GPA is required?  What is your major?  What school are you transferring to?  Check out the flyers, and then head to the Scholarship Office or online for more detailed information and applications.

MULTICULTURAL DAY DESIGNS ON DISPLAY!

Every year, in conjunction with Multicultural Day, students may submit entries for the Multicultural Day design that will appear on promotional materials such as posters, flyers, sweatshirts, and T-shirts.  All 26 entries submitted this year are displayed on the west side of the display case right inside the front doors of Library Learning Resources (LLR).

Congratulations to the 1st place winner Jayce Hawblitzel, as well as Erica Sherman (2nd place) and Carlos Tapia (3rd place).

This year Multicultural Day is on Tuesday, April 12th.
