The College is in Phase Two of transitioning college operations back to our campuses. Campuses will not be open to walk-in students or visitors.
Scholarships are awarded by the College's review committee with a process that gives students the greatest change of receiving scholarship funds. All students follow the same application process. Students will not apply to specific scholarships. Scholarships are applied for the following academic year during the spring semester.
Each student will be notified when they are awarded a scholarship or if they were not selected to receive a scholarship. The awards will be placed on the student’s account prior to the beginning of the fall semester. If a student is selected for a scholarship, they must submit a thank you letter for their donor, in order to receive the scholarship. If a thank you letter is not received, the scholarship will be removed from the student’s account. All scholarship recipients must attend the scholarship breakfast in October 2020, to engage with their donor.
The application period for 2020-2021 scholarships is Monday, March 16 – Friday, April 24, 2020.
A complete list of scholarships and their criteria can be found on the AcademicWorks website.
