Mediacom Scholarship Program

Just like most families, the Mediacom family believes in the importance of higher education. As a corporation with strong community roots, they wanted to support, in some way, the higher education of their customers. For this reason, they 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 55 $1,000 non-renewable scholarships through its World Class Scholarship Program to seniors in high school in the 21 states where it provides cable, internet, and telephone services.
