Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Scholarship aid is required for an overwhelming majority of individuals enrolling as students at Mississippi Delta Community College and persist toward graduation. More than two-thirds of our students have a documented financial need. MDCC continues to face significant challenges related to local, state, and federal funding. Now more than ever, we must persist in our efforts to provide a better future for our citizens. Our graduates have increased skills and enhanced earning power, so investing in MDCC pays dividends to the Delta region and the economic well being of all of our citizens.

Funding priorities, currently unmet, are as follows:

Need-Based Scholarships $750,000
(endowed funds needed)

Merit-Based Scholarships $500,000
(endowed funds needed)

Emergency Student Support $40,000/year
(funds needed)

Book Loan Program $20,000/year
(funds needed)

School & Faculty Support Funding $250,000/year
(funds needed)

Our success is based upon the generosity of our faithful donors.

We have a 100% volunteer board comprised of individuals with a shared goal. Our board members are passionate supporters of the College and understand the needs of students.

The MDCC Development Foundation, Inc., began a book loan program to further assist students. Textbook costs area substantial burden for students. On average, students can expect to pay $600 each semester for books and program-specific supplies. Students enrolled in career-technical or health-science programs may require as much as $1,200 per semester to purchase books and supplies. A majority of students state that the cost of textbooks and materials cause an extremely difficult financial burden for them. MDCC’s book loan program hopes to ease that burden.

MDCC’s Emergency Student Support Scholarship, provides financial assistance to students experiencing emergency
situations or unforeseen circumstances. Students who might otherwise not be able to continue their education because of such crisis are considered for support. The number of students that can be served by the emergency fund is subject to the availability of funds, and the need is great.
