SCC Student Scholarship Applications Due

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.

For more information on scholarship, grant and work-study opportunities at Shawnee Community College, call the financial aid office at 618-634-3200, option #2.
