Scholarships

Scholarship students at Financial Aid

Funding for scholarships comes from local high schools, small businesses, corporations, foundations, local, civic and community organizations and individuals and families. Each year, Clark College Foundation distributes more than $1 million in scholarships, awards and other financial support, like emergency grants, to hundreds of students.

The scholarship application process is separate from the application for federal and state financial aid. Deadlines for scholarship applications are generally in late winter or early spring for the following school year.

Most scholarships are disbursed through the Financial Aid Office and eligibility varies according to the criteria established by the donor. For more information regarding scholarships, please come to the Financial Aid Office and ask for the Scholarship and Outreach Coordinator.
