Scholarship funds awarded in 2022-2023

Foundation & Institutional Scholarships

The Southeast Community College Educational Foundation was established in 1975 with the intent of making college affordable for SCC students and to recognize outstanding academic achievement. The student scholarship program has always been the primary objective guiding the Foundation's many activities. 

SCC Institutional scholarships are considered gift aid and do not require repayment. All of the eligibility requirements for federal financial aid also apply to SCC Scholarships.

Online applications are accepted during the following application periods:

  • High School Seniors apply during their senior year for awards in the next academic year. 
    • Dec. 1-March 1
  • Current and New SCC Students apply during the following periods for awards in their next semester. This application is for new students who do not meet the criteria of a high school senior. 
    • Fall Semester Awards: May 1-May 31
    • Spring Semester Awards: Oct. 1-Oct. 31

Your application will be considered and cross-referenced for all scholarships for which you qualify – you don’t have to pre-select your scholarships of interest. Only online applications will be accepted. High School transcripts should be sent to or uploaded in the scholarship application.

Last year, $2.5+ million was awarded to more than 3,000 students by the SCC Educational Foundation. 

External Scholarships

External scholarships are awarded by organizations outside of Southeast Community College. SCC is not informed about scholarships that external organizations have provided to you.

Once you are notified by the organization of your award, it is your responsibility to:

  • notify the SCC Financial Aid office of the scholarship amount
  • provide information about the external scholarship to the SCC Business Office (Student Accounts) to ensure proper handling of the funds, as outlined by the awarding organization.

Once processing is complete the funds will be credited to your account.

Transfer Scholarships

SCC has established agreements with a number of area universities, including Concordia University and Nebraska Wesleyan. Please visit our Transfer Information page for additional details listed with each institution.
