Mediacom offers $60K in scholarships to high school seniors

Mediacom Communications is offering $60,000 in scholarship support for high school seniors who plan to obtain further education.

The scholarship program is in its 20th consecutive year and Mediacom’s investment will award $1,000 scholarships to 60 high school seniors, according to a release.

Scholarship recipients are given the flexibility to use the financial award to support post-secondary college costs or vocational training from an accredited institution starting in the fall of 2021. Award selection is based on academic achievement and leadership.

Applications for Mediacom’s scholarships are at mediacomworldclass.com. All high schools in Mediacom-served communities were sent informational cards asking school officials to make seniors aware of the scholarship and encourage application submissions on or before the Feb. 15, 2021 deadline.

“As a company, Mediacom makes it a priority to give back to communities in which we do business, and one of the best ways is to invest in promising students who are our future leaders,” Mediacom Regional Vice President Steve Purcell said in the release.

Applicants do not have to be Mediacom customers but must live in areas where Mediacom’s broadband network delivers Internet service. Recipients will be selected from the 21 states where Mediacom’s residential customers reside. A list of communities in Mediacom service areas is included with the online application. Inquiries may be sent to scholarship@mediacomcc.com.

Mediacom Communications Corp. provides high-speed data, video and phone services to more than 1.4 million households and businesses across 22 states. Go to mediacomcable.com.
