SCC Foundation Scholarships


Summer/Fall: March 1

Spring: November 1

Support For Our Students. Support For Our Future.

The Scott Community College (SCC) Foundation awards scholarships twice a year to students who will be attending classes at Scott Community College. There are over 100 active scholarships that are awarded each year.

Some scholarships are based on academic excellence, while many others are based on factors such as financial need, community involvement, leadership, or area of study. A scholarship committee including SCC faculty, staff, and SCC Foundation Board of Directors members use a Scholarship Rating Rubric to rate all applications. Once ratings are completed, awards are chosen based on the ratings and the ability to meet required scholarship criteria. To apply for scholarships through the SCC Foundation, please follow the instructions below.
