Available to Midland juniors for summer programs, projects, and internships
The Cosby Award, funded by an endowment donated by Midland alumnus and former trustee Jon Cosby ’63, is an annual award available to support summer endeavors between a Midland student’s junior and senior year. As a school that believes in deep, experiential learning, Midland is grateful to be able to give this opportunity to our students. Thanks to the generosity and vision of the Cosby family, at least one Midland student each summer is financially supported in pursuing a project, study program, or internship of interest. The purpose of the grant is to finance participation in a program in which to explore a personal interest that might lead to a college major or future career choice.
Up to $4,000 per recipient, based on program costs
1 to 3 students annually
