Mountain Scholars Scholarship

The Summit Campus Mountain Scholars Program empowers motivated first-generation students in their journey towards postsecondary and academic success through mentoring, advising, and financial resources. Each student’s identity and aspirational goals are embraced and encouraged to thrive.

Generous donations support the program through a collaboration between the CMC Foundation, Summit Foundation, Moniker Foundation, and other local donors.

Students working on freshman and sophomore courses will be awarded up to $900 per year. Once a student transitions to their junior and senior courses, they may qualify for up to $4000 per year to finish their degree at CMC or a transfer school.

• Meet with community mentor one-on-one at least once a month
• Provide updates and set goals with mentor and CMC Staff
• Freshman and Sophomores: minimum 2.0 GPA*
• Juniors and Seniors: minimum 2.5 GPA
