Convocation (Scholarship) Ceremonies Morton College Foundation

MCF’s dedication to educational advancement continues through the awarding of scholarships to incoming, continuing and graduating Morton College students.  The MCF directors review applications submitted by students and make recommendations of deserving students to the MCF Scholarship Committee.  Each year, MCF hosts at least one Convocation (award ceremony) to present scholarships and awards to the awardees. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the 2020 Convocation was a drive-through event, while the 2021 Summer Convocation was held at Crystal Sky Banquets in McCook, Illinois.

2020 brought challenges to everyone. Due to the pandemic MCF changed many processes to meet changing needs. All MCF board meetings were held virtually. The spring convocation was moved outdoors to a drive through event where students were awarded their scholarship while remaining in their cars.

For the first time, MCF offered scholarships in both spring & fall. MCF awarded $83,500 in scholarships, awards and grants to Morton College students plus $3,000 in outstanding service awards to Morton College faculty and staff.
