Scholarships are a type of financial aid that can help you pay for college. Scholarships don’t have to be paid back.
Thanks to the ACC Foundation, generous donors, and ACC itself, we have many scholarships available. Learn about ACC scholarships and find outside scholarship options as well.
ACC provides nearly $1 million in scholarships every year. We offer a wide range of scholarships to our students and you may qualify for one or several.
How to Apply
To apply for an available ACC scholarship, you must:
