Turn Minutes into Money

Its easy to apply. If you are current student your academic record will automatically be attached to your application.

Take the time to organize your thoughts for the essay. Tell us about your educational and career goals, your interests and challenges you have overcome and opportunities you have created. 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 with drive and determination to succeed are exactly what makes our College special. 

The application process takes place in the spring, and awards are announced by July 31 for classes starting in the fall. The application period is mid-February through mid April.


Tips from our Scholarship Selection Committee

  • 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.
