California's Middle Class Scholarship (MCS) Program
California's Middle Class Scholarship (MCS) is a program that provides undergraduate students with family incomes up to $184,000 and a maximum annual household asset amount of $184,000, a scholarship to attend University of California (UC) or California State University (CSU) campuses. MCS awards are based on a sliding scale according to family income. Scholarship amounts will vary by student and institution, and the maximum award will be 40% of the systemwide - or base - tuition and fee amount.
2020-21 Award Notification
We anticipate that MCS awards will be posted sometime in mid-November 2020, and students will receive an email to review MyAwards at that time.
Please note, this program is contingent upon state funding.
