Welcome To Morton College Foundation Your Generosity Makes a Difference

Since its inception, the Morton College Foundation (MCF) has disbursed more that $1,000,000 – by awarding scholarships to over 1,400 students, recognizing outstanding service through faculty and staff awards, and contributing to capital development projects at Morton College.

To serve diverse student interests, the MCF administers 32 distinct scholarship and grants, each with unique selection criteria. They range from awards to women who need immediate assistance with living expenses (in order to stay in school) to those studying physical therapy. Additionally, the MCF has scholarships for students embarking on a college career after obtaining a General Education Diploma (GED) and for students who are studying the fine arts. The MCF not only supports students who enjoy writing but those who love baseball too!
