Supporting Higher Education and The Families of Mediacom Customers
Just like most American families, the Mediacom family believes in the importance of higher education. As a corporation with strong community roots, we wanted to support, in some way, the higher education of our customers.
For this reason, we formed World Class – The Mediacom Scholarship Program to help graduating high school students with their college expenses, such as tuition and books.
The selection of scholarship recipients is based on:
Academic Achievement: demonstrated by high school grade point average information (GPA) and class ranking.
Leadership: based on self-reliance, initiative and creative ability in school and out, as reflected in the applicant’s personal essay.
Additional determining factors include:
A) Participation in school activities.
B) Honors received.
C) References of two educators from the school.
D) Participation in community activities.
A) Children of directors, officers, employees or agents of Mediacom are not eligible.
B) Applicants must be legal residents of a community that is being served by Mediacom (see list on pages 6-8).
C) Scholarship awardees may attend any accredited two-year or four-year college, university, technical or vocational school within the United States.
D) Applicants must intend to pursue a course of study at a qualified post-secondary institution.
E) Applicants must be accepted by the qualified post-secondary institution prior to actually receiving a scholarship.
Applicants must commence their post-secondary education or training in the first academic year following their senior year of high school.
F) Applicants must be in their senior year of high school, must be high school graduates or persons who have achieved equivalent certification. If an applicant is awarded a scholarship while in his or her senior year of high school and does not graduate at the end of his or her senior year, he or she is no longer eligible to receive a scholarship.
G) Students completing high school in fewer than the normal four years are eligible to apply.
H) Students entering a qualified post-secondary institution in the middle of their senior high school year are permitted to apply the following year.
I) All scholarships will be awarded without regard to race, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, political affiliation or social or economic status.
J) Scholarships are not renewable.
