Scholarship Information

Scholarships are provided each year through the Roanoke-Chowan Community College Foundation, Inc., and by the generosity of local industries, businesses, professional organizations, civic clubs, and individuals. The scholarship program consists of two types of awards: merit-based scholarships and need-based scholarships. While most of the scholarships are need-based, others are awarded based upon specific criteria stipulated by the donor. Awards usually provide tuition assistance and require the recipient to maintain a minimum GPA. Scholarships are awarded for one academic year beginning with the fall semester, with preference given to second-year students. Students must reapply each year by completing the FAFSA (Free Application for Student Financial Aid). The Financial Aid Office and the college’s website provide scholarship information, application forms, and deadlines. Contact the Financial Aid Office at 252-862-1246 for details.
