Top tips from our Scholarship Selection Committee
- It is okay to apply for more than one scholarship. Let us know all the scholarships that you are qualified for.
- Tell us something we will not see in your academic credentials.
- Competition for some of these scholarships is steep. A thoughtful essay can tip the scales in your favor.

Delaware County Community College's Educational Foundation awards approximately $300,000 in scholarships annually. Each scholarship has its own criteria for eligibility established by the donor(s).
The application period for scholarships is mid-February to mid-April. The application period for 2016-17 closed April 15.
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.
