Foundation Scholarship Application

FOUNDATION SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION

Each year, the SCC Foundation helps to change student lives.

For the 2020-2021 academic year, over $170,000 was awarded through 100 different scholarships to more than 125 deserving students. These scholarships help local students, many of whom do not qualify for federal student aid. This money allows students to pay for tuition and books—which in many cases means not having to work two jobs, having extra money for child care, or being able to finish their degree sooner.

The SCC Foundation Scholarship deadline is Thursday, April 15, 2021.
