DCCC Foundation scholarships are given through the generosity of private donors or community organizations who support our students and programs.
Some scholarship donors stipulate that preference be given to students meeting certain criteria, so please complete all fields of the application so that we can explore all avenues of scholarship funding for you.
- GPA, credit hour, and academic requirements vary by scholarship. Minimum GPA required is 2.0.

We will make every effort to notify you of your scholarship application status before the start of the fall semester.
- The amount of your scholarship award is affected by your other financial aid.
- Preference may be given to students not receiving any other forms of financial aid (such as the Pell Grant or NC Community College Grant)
