Outside Scholarships

The Financial Aid Office administers any scholarship awarded outside of the college. This page includes a list of local and national scholarships that pertain to students attending a community college. SCC provides links to scholarship opportunities as a service to our students. SCC does not offer the scholarships and has no responsibility for or involvement in the scholarship selection and award processes. If you have questions about outside scholarships, please contact the company offering them. Our office does filter out any scholarships that require a fee, but as a general rule, students should never pay for a scholarship opportunity. If a student is awarded a scholarship, the student requests the funds be sent to SCC, and our office loads that money on the student's account. Students can then charge tuition and books against that amount. Any funds left over are sent to the student in a refund check. If students receive any scholarship funds directly, it is their responsibility to notify our office. This webpage will be updated at the first of every month. Visit our Scholarships page for information on internal scholarships and additional outside scholarship resources.
