At the August 13, 2009 formal meeting, the Mercer County Board of Chosen Freeholders congratulated local high school students selected to receive the Freeholders’ Mercer County Community College Scholarship.

The goal of the Freeholders’ scholarship is to encourage Mercer County students to attend MCCC and provide financial assistance in their community college endeavors. In doing so, the scholarship program issues $2,000 to high school seniors who possess a minimum GPA of 2.8 and have plans to attend MCCC in the fall. This year, the Board was able to award 12 students with scholarships.
