The GCC Foundation offers more than 50 endowed awards and scholarships to students annually. Additional GCC Scholarships are awarded via application through the Business Department or through faculty/department nomination only.
This year’s application deadline is March 2, 2014 by 11:59pm. Only currently enrolled GCC students are eligible to apply.
How to apply
- Download and review the 2014 GCC Foundation Scholarship List to determine which awards you may qualify for.
- There is one common application for all scholarships, though some require additional documentation.
- All scholarships require submission of a 250-500 word personal statement describing why you should be considered for an award, your experience at GCC, and where you hope to go from here.
- Some awards have specific eligibility criteria—like GPA or program of study—or require a supplemental statement written on a specific topic.
- Some awards require that a letter of recommendation be provided. It is your responsibility to have your recommendations submitted to the Foundation by the deadline! Recommendations can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to GCC Foundation, ATTN: Scholarship Recommendation, One College Drive, Greenfield MA 01301
- Complete the online application form. You can submit one application for multiple awards. (You will not be able to apply for certain scholarships if you do not meet the eligibility criteria.)
