  • Application Process

    The Howard Community College Educational Foundation, Inc. (HCCEF) maintains endowments and scholarships established through generous contributions from businesses, foundations, civic organizations, and individuals. Scholarship criteria differs and may or may not include financial need, academic merit, learning program, special skills or talent, and other.

    APPLICATION PROCESS

    1. Students must submit the 2015-2016 online application to be considered for a 2015-2016 HCCEF scholarship. Students will be required to set up a scholarship application account ("Sign Up" tab on website). Students who submitted an application last year will click "Sign In". The application requires a 500 word essay defining: career and educational goals, the benefits of a college education, and how the student meets the criteria established by the donor.

    2. Some scholarships are considered need-based and students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Students who are applying for financial aid, including scholarships, are encouraged to complete the Financial Aid 2015-2016 Application Process in order to maximize their financial aid resources. The March 1, 2015 priority filing date is for students to be considered for certain Maryland state and institutional assistance.

    3. Priority is given to students enrolling for the fall 2015 semester who complete the Howard Community College Educational Foundation, Inc. (HCCEF) application process by the priority filing date each year. Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis after the priority filing date until all funds have been awarded for the academic year, or January 31, 2016. The status of the scholarships will be updated regularly on the scholarship criteria page.

    4. Students who earned less than 12 college credits are required to submit an unofficial high school transcript. Students who earned college credit from another institution and earned less than 12 credits at HCC are required to submit an unofficial transcript(s) from previous colleges. Copies of required transcripts must be submitted to Financial Aid Services. Current students who have earned more than 12 credits at HCC are not required to submit an HCC transcript.

    Please note: A full-time student schedule for either the fall or spring semesters generally consists of 12 to 18 credit hours. Only students who are enrolled for a minimum of 6 credit hours will be considered. Awards are granted for the fall and spring semesters.
