March 1 Deadline for Spring Scholarships from SCC Foundation


The Southeastern Community College Foundation is now accepting applications for scholarships for students who plan to attend SCC in the fall of 2019. Applications will be accepted until 4:30 p.m., March 1.

The Foundation will have more than 500 scholarships totaling an estimated $400,000 available to students for the upcoming school year.

Scholarships range in size from $100 to full tuition and books and are available to a wide variety of students. Awards are available by program of study, county of residence, academic accomplishment, financial need, career goal, minority group, adult students, veterans, and more.

Anyone who plans to attend or is considering attending SCC in the fall is encouraged to apply by visiting SCC's homepage,

"About 60% of students who apply receive an award, which are much better odds than most scholarships," explains Rump. "Just one hour spent completing the application could get you a scholarship."

Rump continues that the SCC Foundation's online application automatically matches qualifying students with funding opportunities. "You don't have to sift through all 500 scholarships and fill out multiple forms. You just apply once, and you're matched with a scholarship. Maybe two!"

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).

As a service to residents of the area, SCC staff will be available to help applicants complete the SCC Foundation scholarship form and the FAFSA at its FAFSA Ready Iowa workshop on February 6 at both West Burlington and Keokuk campuses from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
