About SCC Home | About SCC | Educational Foundation | Scholarship Information Scholarship Information More about the Scholarships Since its beginning, the Southeast Community College Educational Foundation has supported the vitality and growth of SCC to benefit students, staff and the communities the College serves through the development and wise use of financial resources.The student scholarship program has always been the primary objective guiding the Foundation's many activities. Initiated in 1978, the scholarship program provided a total of $1,000 for each of SCC's three campuses that first year. Donor generosity, sound planning and wise investments have fostered tremendous growth from those humble beginnings. Cumulative Scholarship and Awards between 1978 and now exceed 5.3 million dollars. Foundation donors, many of whom are SCC alumni, have made generous contributions to the scholarship programs for our students. Without their help, many students many would not have been able to realize their dreams of a college education. SCC's mission is to provide opportunities for growth and development to all students, no matter what their educational goals. The SCC Foundation mission is to offer the financial support necessary to help students who want to reach those goals. Contributions make all the difference to many deserving students. Thank you so much for supporting the students, their education and the growth and vitality of SCC! General Scholarship Fund Intelligent and talented students are a vital resource to society. As the baby boom generation retires at a rapid pace, the demand for highly skilled, highly trained workers also increases. Many alumni and friends remember how difficult it was for them and their families to meet the financial obligations of attending college. Donors to SCC's Educational Foundation share a special commitment: to provide Southeast Community College students a valuable educational experience. Providing opportunities for students in and around our service area is a critical step toward fulfilling the needs of a skilled workforce. Today, with the rising costs associated with a quality education, this is more important than ever. Each gift to the College's Scholarship Fund represents a level of confidence in the SCC tradition of providing a high-quality education to the men and women who represent our future. The SCC Scholarship Fund is the most effective way to provide bright, hardworking men and women with the opportunity to experience all that Southeast has to offer. Make an impact on someone's life now and in the future by contributing to the SCC Educational Foundation's Scholarship Fund. Donate to a Specific Scholarship There are nearly 300 named scholarships in SCC's Educational Foundation. Each has its own eligibility criteria, including specific programs, campus locations and award amounts. Perhaps you know the family, or someone in the family, whose name appears on an SCC scholarship. SCC offers many opportunities to contribute to an existing scholarship or to establish one in your name. Your gift to support SCC students would make a tangible difference for financially needy students by reducing the amount of money they would otherwise need to borrow.
