SCTCC Scholarships

We believe in you!

So many individuals and organizations value the skill, work ethic, critical thinking and care that SCTCC graduates bring to our region. One of the many ways they show gratitude is through scholarship gifts.

Thanks to the generous investments of alumni, community partners, faculty and staff, the SCTCC Foundation has been able to award more than $1 million in scholarships since 1999. More than 300 scholarships are available each academic year.

Unless noted, students simply need to complete the common application online to be considered.

The scholarship application for Fall 2016 is currently OPEN.
