A large number of scholarships ranging in awards from $500 to $2,500 are offered to SCC students by businesses, civic organizations, service clubs, individual donors, and the state of North Carolina. They are awarded to students who have demonstrated above-average academic ability, exhibit financial need or in recognition of those pursuing particular careers.

All scholarships require at least a 3.0 GPA, with a few exceptions. Applicants must maintain full-time student status (12 or more credits) at SCC each semester if awarded a scholarship. In most cases, when scholarships are awarded, financial need is secondary to academic achievement. Some scholarships are especially for students in designated programs or from specified high schools.

All scholarship amounts are based on funds available each year, and some amounts vary from year to year. A scholarship application is required.

Interested persons should contact the Financial Aid Office for details.
