2017-2018 Foundation Scholarship Application Page

Submit this application by May 1, 2017 to increase your chance of receiving scholarship funds for the 2017-2018 school year. (We will accept applications after May 1, 2017)

For students who apply by the priority deadline, decisions for fall are typically made at the end of July or early August, and decisions for spring are typically made at the end of December or early January.  Applications received after the priority deadline may not be reviewed until after the semester begins so students may need to be prepared to pay their costs out of pocket.

The DCCC Foundation is reviewing scholarship applications for the 2017-2018 academic year.  These scholarships are provided through the generosity of private donors or organizations in our community who support our students and programs. Some scholarship donors stipulate that preference be given to students meeting certain criteria, so please complete all fields of the application so that we can explore all avenues of scholarship funding for you.

For most of our scholarships, preference is given to students enrolled at DCCC full-time (12 hours or more) with at least 12 semester hours already completed. Enrollment in at least 6 credit hours, and a GPA of 2.0 or higher (on a 4.0 scale) is required for scholarship consideration unless otherwise specified. Foundation scholarships are divided equally into the Fall and Spring semesters, and you must remain enrolled in at least 6 credit hours per semester in order to receive the semester award, along with maintaining at least a 2.0 GPA unless otherwise specified.

You must have completed the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) for 2017-2018. If you have not completed the FAFSA at the time this application is reviewed, you will be dropped from scholarship consideration.
