The Scholarship Application is currently closed.


The HCC Foundation scholarship application cycle was open from February 1 through March 19, 2019 for scholarships for the 2019-2020 academic year.

The review and awarding process is currently underway.  Students will be notified in late April.

Be sure to check your hawkmail account.  If you are awarded a scholarship, you must complete a few steps in order to accept your award.

Our next application cycle will open in early September 2019 and will be for scholarship opportunities for the Spring 2020 term.

HCC Foundation Scholarships

Generous donors to the HCC Foundation help make these scholarships possible for students. A committee of application reviewers awards scholarships to HCC degree-seeking students who have applied and met certain criteria through a competitive process.

Scholarships are typically awarded for one academic year or term (fall and spring; or spring only), unless otherwise noted. Recipients must reapply for any subsequent year. For information on institutional scholarships and other financial aid options, visit the Financial Aid web page.

Applying for a scholarship

HCC Foundation scholarships are intended for students who will be degree-seeking during the term(s) for which the scholarship applies. In order to apply, you must have a Hillsborough Community College student ID. The scholarship application process is quick, easy and free! Click the Apply for Scholarships button to the left. If you have a HCC student ID, you already have an account that may be accessed at any time and from various devices.

After you have applied

Following the closing date for applications, the scholarship application review and awarding process will begin and will take up to six weeks. Please note that we have many more applicants for scholarships than we have funds to award, so not all students will receive a scholarship. We appreciate your patience. You may check back on the status of your scholarship application by logging into your online account. HCC Foundation notices and updates will be sent to your Hawkmail account, so check it frequently for additional information
