Helping Students One Scholarship at a Time
Scholarships are gifts that do not require repayment. They can be awarded based on various criteria such as academics, hometowns, gender, ethnicity or program of student. Some scholarships are even renewable from year-to-year. All academic scholarships are administered through the Spartanburg Community College Foundation and the SCC Financial Aid Office. Selection of recipients is made by the Spartanburg Community College Scholarship Committee (except in the case where an established set of guidelines provide for a special selection committee). The application for scholarships is available in from January through June each year (available on this web page during this timeframe).
Learn more about scholarships by viewing our "Guide to Financial Aid, Veterans Affairs & Scholarship" brochure.
