The scholarship program at Suffolk County Community College is administered under the auspices of the Suffolk Community College Foundation, Inc. Scholarships are made available through the generosity of various individuals, student organizations, college faculty and staff, local and community groups, business firms, and through the fund-raising activities of the Suffolk Community College Foundation.

Eligibility criteria vary depending on the particular scholarship in question. Typical criteria include grade point average and credits completed, while selected scholarships may also require a specific academic program, residence in a limited geographic area, community service, or co-curricular activities. Other factors which may be considered include essays, faculty recommendations, and interviews. The actual selection process is coordinated by both campus and collegewide scholarship committees.

We urge you to carefully review all of the scholarship listings and to actively pursue all those for which you are qualified. Good luck!


Scholarship grant funds are made available to students through the National Science Foundation and Suffolk County.
