Scholarships are a free resource you do not pay back.
Your achievements in class and outside the classroom can earn you scholarship money for educational expenses. Scholarships are “gift aid,” meaning they are a free resource you do not repay. They are awarded for any number of reasons such as: academic standing, leadership, specialized talents, ethnic origin, etc., and are available whether you are just beginning your ECC studies or are near graduation.
Complete applications and all required materials must be submitted before a student will be considered for a scholarship. Some scholarship funds are available for in-district students only.
