Mediacom World Class Scholarship

Just like most families, the Mediacom family believes in the importance of higher education. As a corporation with strong community roots, we wanted to support, in some way, the higher education of our customers.
For this reason, we formed World Class – The Mediacom Scholarship Program to help graduating high school students with their college expenses, such as tuition and books. Through the World Class program, Mediacom awards $1,000 scholarships to winning applicants.

The selection of scholarship recipients is based on:
Academic Achievement: demonstrated by high school
grade point average information (GPA) and class ranking.
Leadership: based on self-reliance, initiative and creative ability
in school and out, as reflected in the applicant’s personal essay.
Additional determining factors include:
• Participation in school activities.
• Honors received.
• References of two educators from the school.
• Participation in community activities.
Completed application materials should be
postmarked on or before February 15, 2013,
and sent to:
Mediacom

3737 Westown Parkway, Suite 2A
West Des Moines, IA 50266
