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

those humble beginnings. Cumulative Scholarship and Awards between

Foundation donors, many of whom are SCC alumni, have made generous
contributions to the scholarship programs for our students. Without

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.
