SCC Student Scholarship Applications
Shawnee Community College
Shawnee Community College offers over 47 different types of
scholarships to well deserving district students. The deadline
for application for many SCC scholarships is March 1.
Opportunities include scholarships based on academic,
athletic, community activities, the arts and special interests.
Non-traditional, home schooled, military, and memorial
scholarships also assist students. Most Shawnee Community College
scholarships are based on grades and/or financial need.
Students must complete a Free Application for Federal Student
Aid (FASFA). When several applicants meet the scholarship
criteria, financial need will be considered. Many include
in-district tuition, fees and textbook loans. Students must meet
scholarship eligibility criteria as outlined in the SCC Financial
Aid booklet available from the SCC financial aid office.
Select SCC students also qualify to apply for a number of
grants including the Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental
Educational Opportunity Grant, Monetary Award Program, and the
Illinois Incentive for Access grant. The Federal Work-Study
program gives students a chance to earn money while gaining work
experience. A limited number of positions are available.
Students are encouraged to complete the FASFA and SCC
scholarship application as soon as possible.
