Turn Minutes into Money

Take the time to organize. This is not an exhausting process, but do take the time to clearly state how you meet the requirements specified by our donors. Tell us why YOU deserve this honor. This is FREE money that does not need to be paid back (unlike a student loan).

We want to give these awards to deserving students

Students who show the drive and determination to succeed are exactly what makes our College special. Providing this financial assistance will allow more students to continue their studies and earn certificates and degrees.

The application process takes place in the spring, and awards are announced in the summer months for classes starting in the fall. The application period will be open mid-February through mid April.

NEW! JP Morgan Chase Scholars Program

Through the generosity of JP Morgan Chase, the Delaware County Community College Educational Foundation is pleased to offer scholarship support to selected students choosing to pursue a program of study in manufacturing. The scholarship is intended to complement any other financial aid for which a student might be eligible, or meet tuition and fees in full for students who are unable to receive aid but have a documented need for financial assistance. Furthermore, the scholarship can be renewable for students who are able to make satisfactory academic progress in their program of study.
