Due to the generosity of private donors, Sandhills Community College will be able to award more than $500,000 in merit and need-based scholarships for the 2017-2018 academic year, which begins in August 2017.
Beginning on November 14, the college began accepting applications from current high school students, prospective students, current Sandhills students and anyone planning to return.
The Early Consideration deadline will be on February 28. Applications received by this date will be considered before all others. A scholarship committee, appointed by President Dr. John Dempsey, selects the recipients. Scholarships are administered through the college’s financial aid office.
The Scholarship application process includes a completed admissions application, the completion and filing of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the Sandhills Scholarship Application. All forms are posted on the college’s website at scholarships.sandhills.edu.
