Somerset Community College is able to offer a variety of scholarships to deserving students thanks to the many generous organizations and individuals who have made gifts to SCC expressly for this purpose.
Scholarships at SCC are limited and can vary significantly in the amount awarded, as well as in the eligibility criteria. Please keep in mind that funds are limited and not all applicants receive awards.
