The Mira Costa College Foundation has been extremely helpful as I pursue my educational goals. Since I have decided to work part time in order to focus on gaining new and marketable skills, the financial help has made it possible for me to fully concentrate on my studies.
I am so grateful for the Mira Costa College Foundation they have allowed me the opportunity to pursue my dreams of becoming a Nurse. I would not have been able to do it without their financial assistance. Thank You Mira Costa!
I am so thankful for the Mira Costa College Foundation this program helps a lot of us with some of our financial burdens and that is so great...Thank you!!
As a non-traditional student returning back to college was very challenging. I am not only a non-traditional student returning back to college after 13 years I am also a mother of a ten-year old. Due to my decision to return back to college it has placed tremendous financial hardship on my family and if it wasn't for the Mira Costa College Foundation it would be extremely hard to make college a reality for me.
MiraCosta College Foundation is more amazing than Shake & Bake, and they really help!
Listen, I am a mid-30s, financially struggling, unemployed, hardworking, determined, and dedicated college student. However, because of a few of those descriptors, I would have had to abandon school and taken ANY job that would have me (on more than one occasion). MCCF has helped me see my college quiet through, uninterrupted, to this point: an AA in Dramatic Arts, an AA in Automotive Technologies, a Certificate of Accomplishment in Automotive Technologies (with Highest Honors), and currently pursuing my Certificate in Business.
Frankly, I would have none of this yet without the MiraCosta College Foundation, the encouragement of its representatives, and the contributions of its donors!
Thank you to everyone involved!
As a mother of five it is hard to find time for myself let alone get an education. After all of my financial aid had ran out I was able to apply for a grant threw the Mira Costa Foundation, Osher scholarship which allotted me the moneys needed to pay for my books and motivate me to continue my education on-line at MiraCosta.
Without the wonderful donors and awesome foundation, I would have given up on my education a long time ago. I just received my Certificate of Accomplishment and was able to participate in graduation ceremonies of 2014. After years of hard work it was great to reach my goal. Thank you MiraCost College Foundation.
I am extremely grateful for the financial support from the MiraCosta College Foundation. With the generous scholarship from the foundation, I am given the opportunity to excel in the field of Biotechnology. The scholarship allows me to take more courses to get my AA degree sooner. The staffs of the MiraCosta College foundation are so knowledge and helpful. They work very hard to raise funds for the scholarship programs . They do everything they can to help the disadvantaged students to achieve their goals. The MiraCosta College Foundation makes me feel that MiraCosta College is my second home and indeed, it is.
I am very grateful for the support the Mira Costa College Foundation has given me during my time at Mira Costa. The financial support allowed me to focus solely on my academics rather than on worrying about finances. I am transferring to UCSD in the fall and am grateful to have saved money on the way to completing my bachelor's degree in bioengineering.
I am so grateful and appreciative for the financial support I received from the MiraCosta Foundation. Thanks to the generosity of many I am that much closer to obtaining my educational goal having an AA Degree in Multicultural Studies with transfer.Being poor really sucks and every dollar counts thanks to the Foundation I was able to get things that seriously aided in my success like gas, food and school supplies. Please keep this program alive, Thank you all for the wonderful work you do.~Sincerely Courtney
The MiraCosta College Foundation has made a life changing impact upon me. I was asked to share my student testimonial at the MCC Foundation's Silver & Gold Holiday Celebration in 2013; as a result, I have begun motivational speaking through-out North County San Diego. Also, I am a recipient of the Mort and Agatha Winski scholarship which has helped me tremendously! After receiving the scholarship I have been able to excel in the classroom and work less hours during finals. I am very proud of Linda Fogerson, Cynthia Rice, and Board of Trustees President David Broad for their dedication to raising funds for students in need like myself. Thank again.
Student Trustee (2014-15)
