Who can Apply for MTNT Foundation Scholarships?

To be eligible for MTNT Foundation scholarships, applicants must:

  • Be enrolled to MTNT, Limited or be the child of an original enrollee
  • Be accepted to an accredited college, university, technical or vocational school
  • Be enrolled in a program that is at least six weeks or 120 hours long
  • Maintain a minimum grade point average of 2.0 for undergraduate students, 3.0 for graduate or master’s degree students, or 3.25 for specialists or doctorate students

If a new student applies with a GPA below these criteria, the student will be placed on probation for the first funding period.  If a returning student’s GPA falls below these criteria during any funding period, the student will be placed on probation.  If the student fails to increase his/her cumulative GPA to the minimum level during the probation period, sequential funding will be canceled and the student must successfully complete a semester on his/her own before reapplying for funding.

What kind of scholarships does MTNT Foundation offer and when do I apply?

MTNT Foundation offers basic vocational scholarships. Awards range from $500 per semester for part-time students to $1,000 per semester for full-time or vocational students.

Basic Scholarships

Basic scholarships are for students enrolled in a degree program, at an accredited school, either part time or full time.  There are three deadlines: applications must be postmarked by 5 p.m. on March 15 (for the summer semester), July 15 (for the fall semester) and December 15 (for the spring semester).

Vocational Scholarships

Vocational scholarships are for those students enrolled in a one-­year to three-­year certificate or associate's degree program. This scholarship has the same deadlines as the Basic Scholarship.
