This spring, Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts announced that MountainOne Financial donated $25,000 to establish a scholarship aid fund at the College to assist promising students whose family’s financial resources have been negatively affected by the recent closure of North Adams Regional Hospital.

The contribution will allow for students who have been impacted and are attending MCLA in the fall to receive a $2,500 scholarship. To qualify, the students must attend MCLA full time, be in good academic standing, be enrolled in a bachelor’s degree program, and be able to demonstrate unmet financial need due to the NARH closure.

In order to be considered for the MountainOne scholarship, students must submit an application through the MCLA Financial Aid Office which is located in Eldridge Hall on the MCLA campus, or can be completed online at
