"My dream after receiving my GED was to attend MCC to pursue an associate’s degree, but I was only able to afford the tuition for two semesters.  By the grace of the Middlesex Community College Foundation Scholarship Program, my dream has come true. Today, I am an MCC graduate, and I plan to transfer to UMass Lowell to obtain my bachelor's degree."
