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 Scholarships

ACC provides nearly $1 million in scholarships every year. We offer a wide range of scholarships to our students and it is possible that you qualify for one or several.

You can see all of the ACC scholarships available through AcademicWorks.

How to Apply

In order to apply for an available ACC scholarship, you must:

  1. Complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)*
  2. Complete a scholarship application through AcademicWorks

*The FAFSA is not required for all scholarships

**Concurrent Enrollment students: please note that you are not eligible for scholarships until you have completed your high school requirements.
