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
