MAC Grant awards vary and are based on need for tuition at MCC or TSTC. Students that choose to attend other colleges are not eligible their first two years but are eligible to apply for a MAC Scholarship.
After completing the first two years, eligible students that apply can receive $2,500 in tuition for each of the final two years at a college of their choice. MAC Scholarship are provided by Mr. and Mrs. Clifton Robinson, Passport to Success Foundation (Mr. and Mrs. Paul J. Meyer), Mr. and Mrs. Malcolm Duncan and Waco Foundation. Each year, Baylor University also provides full scholarships to the three transfer students with the highest GPA.
Grants for the first two years pay tuition at McLennan Community College or Texas State Technical College (Waco location only) that isn’t already covered by Federal or State grants or other scholarships. MAC covers the remaining tuition needed for these two institutions.
$2,500 MAC Scholarships are awarded at a ceremony held each July. The funds will be sent directly to the student’s college each semester.
MAC Grants will only cover tuition. MAC Scholarships are paid directly to the university and can be used for anything that the student can charge on his or her student account, which may include books, living expenses, dining, etc.
MAC staff conduct FAFSA workshops at area high schools, assists students in completing the FAFSA and provide other counseling regarding student financial aid as needed.
