Applications are now open for the McCall Huron County Scholarships! Apply now at the link in our bio.

Originally from Huron County, Marcy McCall MacBain created this scholarship as a way to identify and support young people in the county who make positive contributions to their schools or broader communities.

Initiated in 2018, these scholarships have traditionally been reserved for university-bound students. This year, on a pilot basis, the McCall MacBain Foundation is very pleased to offer scholarships to students pursing degree and diploma programs (2-3 years) at both universities and colleges, and to increase the overall number of scholarships offered.

McCall Huron County Scholarship recipients are selected based on the demonstration of potential for leadership, positive contributions to their school or broader communities and an overall commitment to excellence.

Complete an online application by February 22, 2022.
