It is the intention of the CMC Foundation, through the generous donations of our donors, to see students through the completion of their chosen area of study.
Scholarship funds granted may only be used towards the completion of the students designated area of study listed on the scholarship application. Student must notify their scholarship coordinator if they take any classes other than those required for their designated certificate or degree program, or if they change their area of study. Failure to do so may result in cancellation of scholarship.
