Only apply to scholarships that are *recommended to you; although the system will allow you to apply to other scholarships, you are not qualified for any that aren’t indicated as recommended to you.*

• Click on each scholarship name to learn more about the opportunity and its requirements. The scholarship description will include any specific essay topic if required. You may submit applications for up to three scholarships.

  • Students that already have received a two- or four-year degree are not eligible to apply.
  • Scholarship funds are not available for summer courses and will be applied only to fall and spring semester tuition.
  • Graduate scholarships are for students graduating from DCC and who will be attending a four-year institution the following fall semester. You must have 40 DCC credits completed at time of application.
  • Continuing scholarships are for students who are in their second semester at DCC, who will be continuing for their second year at DCC in the fall and who will have completed 24 DCC credits prior to the start of the fall semester.
  • Qualified applicants must have a minimum 2.0 GPA (higher for some scholarships as specified) and be in good standing.
  • Full-time students are defined as taking 12 or more credits a semester and part-time as 11 or fewer credits a semester.
  • Students are eligible to receive only one award.
  • By applying for a scholarship you acknowledge and approve the release of your information to individuals charged with reviewing the applications.

• Review your Applicant Record. If any information is incorrect, please notify the Registrar’s office at (845) 431-8020.

• You are now ready to begin your search and application process by signing in with your myDCC user ID and password. The Sign In button is on the top right corner of this page.
