April 1 Deadline for $250,000 in Scholarships From SCC Foundation


West Burlington, IA- The Southeastern Community College Foundation is now accepting applications for scholarships for students who plan to attend SCC in the fall. Applications will be accepted until 4:30PM CDT, April 1, 2016.

SCC Foundation Executive Director Becky Rump says thanks to the many cash donations, memorials, planned gifts and bequests from individuals and businesses, more than 300 scholarships totaling nearly $250,000 will be available for the upcoming academic year.

Rump says individuals interested in scholarships must apply online by completing a single application form available SCC’s homepage, www.scciowa.edu.

Anyone who plans to attend or is considering attending SCC in the fall is encouraged to apply.

“Usually about half of the students who apply receive an award, which are much better odds than most scholarships. Just one hour spent completing the application could yield scholarships ranging from $100 to full tuition and books,” Rump explains.

To be considered for funding, an applicant must, in addition to completing the online application: 1) provide at least one email address of a qualified individual who will write a reference letter; 2) submit a copy of their latest educational transcripts to the college’s Enrollment Services office; and 3) complete the online Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
