How to complete the scholarship application

Before a student can complete the scholarship application, they must be admitted to NMC. Once a student is admitted they can complete the NMC General Scholarship Application through their MyNMC.

Upon completion of the NMC General Scholarship Application, eligible students:

  • will automatically be matched to NMC scholarship opportunities, and
  • have the opportunity to view the Recommended Scholarship page under the Opportunities tab.
    • Additional action is required for the Recommended NMC Scholarships such as providing an additional essay, letter(s) of recommendation, or answering an additional question(s).

Once a student is awarded a scholarship, they will be notified through their NMC email address.

  • Students are required to submit a thank you note for each scholarship received.
    • If a thank you note is not received, a scholarship may be removed and awarded to a new student.
    • Review this video to assist you in writing your thank you letter.

Many of our scholarships are provided through generous charitable gifts to the NMC Foundation.


NMC also provides information on additional scholarship opportunities, offered by outside agencies on the External page under the Opportunities tab. NMC is not affiliated with these organizations or the awarding of their scholarships.

College has been a dream for me since early middle school. I have strived for a challenge, graduating high school early, being a part of a few extracurriculars, volunteering and working here on campus, as well as being awarded the first year Engineering student.
