McCall Huron County Scholarships
An undergraduate scholarship program for Huron County students with leadership potential.
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.
For students entering degree programs, the scholarship is valued at up to $28,000 over four years of university study, renewable annually, plus a travel grant for those who choose to study further from home, bringing the total value up to $44,000.
For those entering 2-year or 3-year diploma programs, the scholarship is valued at up to $8,000 over two years or up to $12,000 over three years, renewable annually, plus a travel grant for those who choose to study further from home, bringing the total value up to $24,000 over three years.
