Apply for Scholarships

ACC Scholarships

The ACC Foundation offers numerous scholarships funded by individuals, service clubs, corporations, and foundations to provide financial assistance to ACC students who meet the criteria established by the scholarship donors.

Recipients may:

  • Be new or returning students depending upon the scholarship offered
  • Reside in or out of district depending upon the scholarship offered
  • Be full-time or part-time depending upon the scholarship offered

A student who wishes to be considered for a specific scholarship must meet the qualifications and fill out the scholarship application form. An applicant must have a high school diploma or GED or demonstrate the ability to benefit from a particular program of study. Some scholarships require letters of recommendation and/or essays, and may be renewable for a second year provided all requirements are met.

Scholarship offers are applied to the student’s account in equal amounts over the fall and spring semesters. If the scholarship recipient does not attend ACC for the fall semester, the scholarship offer will be forfeited.

Virtual Scholarship Workshops

Join Brenda Herman, Director of the ACC Foundation, for 3 virtual scholarship workshops that are being held to assist students with completing their application. Brenda will give a brief overview of the process and provide some helpful tips and tricks, as well as open it up for questions from students.  All current or prospective ACC students are welcome to attend any of the 3 sessions. Students do not need to attend all three sessions.
