March 1 is the priority deadline to turn in a scholarship application for the 2019-20 school year at Mid-Plains Community College. More than $600,000 worth of academic and program-focused scholarships are available.

Current and prospective students can apply for the scholarships online at https://mpcc.awardspring.com/. They will need to register for an account to complete the form.

Erinn Brown, area director of financial aid, recommends students register with an email address they will access throughout the 2019-20 school year to ensure they receive follow-up communications.

Students will be able to see within their accounts what scholarships they qualify for and track the progress of their applications.

“If they receive an award, students will be notified through the system,” said Brown. “They can then log in to accept or decline the scholarship.”

More information about the scholarships and the application process is available by calling Brown at (308) 345-8112, or emailing finaid@mpcc.edu.
