The offer

Two grand prizes will be awarded to MOPS members who enter the scholarship contest: one $10,000 grand prize scholarship for an undergraduate degree and one $5,000 grand prize scholarship for a master’s degree. The scholarships will be awarded from a drawing of all Fall 2020 MOPS Scholarship Contest eligible entrants.

Designated grand prize winners

A random drawing will be held to select the winners of the $10,000 grand prize scholarship and $5,000 grand prize scholarship. The names of the winners will be posted on the CCU and MOPS Scholarship Contest website.

Once notified, the grand prize scholarship winners must accept the scholarship within 14 calendar days. If the winner does not accept the scholarship within 14 calendar days, the scholarship will be awarded to the next entrant in the random drawing.
