Minimum Scholarship Application Criteria
To submit an application, you must meet the minimum criteria listed below:

  • 2.0 GPA or above
  • SCC home location with Admissions & Records
  • A minimum of one personal reference must be submitted with your application
  • If selected as a recipient, you must meet the specific criteria of the scholarship at the time of processing and/or disbursement. The specific criteria can be reviewed in the description of each scholarship opportunity.

Opportunity Specific Criteria
Each scholarship opportunity may have unique criteria and/or requirements in addition to the minimum criteria listed above (i.e. a specific major, a higher GPA, campus involvement). To view a list of all scholarship opportunities, click “All” under “Opportunities” tab. If you click on the opportunity name, you can view the description of the scholarship along with specific criteria or requirements. Your application will be considered for a scholarship opportunity only if you meet the scholarship criteria.

Auto-Matched Opportunities
Based on the information submitted on the general application and the imported data within your official student record, your application will be “Auto-Matched” to scholarship opportunities. This means your application will be automatically placed in the applicant pool to be considered for any scholarship opportunity for which you meet the specific criteria. Auto-Match scholarships will appear with “None” listed under the “Action” column on the opportunities list.

Apply-To Opportunities
Some scholarship opportunities require an additional essay after the initial application is submitted. These are “Apply-To” scholarship opportunities. You must meet the scholarship’s criteria based on your application and imported student data before the additional essay question is made available on recommended opportunities tab on the scholarship portal. If you meet the minimum criteria, you may submit the additional essay or application to be considered for these opportunities.

Disbursement Information
Scholarship funds are disbursed to recipients after the start of the next academic year. All scholarship disbursements that are provided in a form of a check, must be deposited within the same academic year in which the scholarship was awarded.
