The Middlesex Community College Foundation recently awarded 53 scholarships totaling $48,450 to 47 deserving Middlesex students for the 2016-2017 academic year. Among the recipients was Fatou Sidibe of Bedford who received the Ray Shea Memorial Scholarship for International Studies.
The awards range from $500 to $2,500 and are funded by a variety of sources, including memorial donations, local businesses, private foundations and private donors.
“At Middlesex, we recognize the accomplishments of our students, and the strong and generous commitment from our donors who provide financial assistance to our students as they work hard to achieve their dreams of higher education and meaningful careers,” said Dennis Malvers, Dean of College Advancement.
Three new scholarships were established and awarded this year, including the David F. Beauchemin Music Scholarship established by Jennifer Aradhya in memory of her father; the MCC Performing Arts scholarship, established with funds raised at the Murder at Nesmith House fundraiser; and the MCC Foundation Board of Directors Founder’s Award, through which five scholarships were awarded to students traveling on the China and Ireland International Education Fellowships and other study-abroad programs.
