Cookies For Scholarships
The new UC Merced * MSSM Friendship Cookie
A Unique Idea...
All net proceeds from the sales of Friendship
Cookies will fund a unique MSSM Friendship
Scholarship to be awarded to an incoming UC
Merced freshman student from any high school
within the United States. MSSM Friendship
Scholarships are awarded at $4,000 each year and
renewable for four years when all criteria is met.
Scholarships are not transferable to another
school, so the money raised here stays here.
You may be familiar with the Lantern Room on
the Fourth floor of the library, named the
McFadden – Willis Reading Room in memory of
four local children Melanie, Stanley, Stuart and
Michelle Willis McFadden. The MSSM
Friendship Scholarships were inspired by their
lives and this “Cookies For Scholarships” pilot
program is an effort to take a new twist – a very
tasty one, too! – on the original Friendship
Scholarships (available to local Merced Union
High School Students attending any college in
the United States). As a 501©3 public charity, we
need your support to sponsor more scholarships
to help students achieve their dreams – and what
better idea (YUM!) than “Cookies For
Scholarships”? An exclusive Friendship
Scholarship for students attending UC Merced,
awarded by the same criteria of friendship and
service to others.
Thank you for your support!
