Meanwhile, you can apply for Outside Scholarships. Opportunities are available all year.

Scholarships are monetary gifts presented to students who meet conditions defined by the person or group giving the money. Many organizations, agencies, and businesses offer scholarships. There are many online sources of information about available scholarships, including UCC Foundation opportunities.

The UCC Foundation generally observes a limit of $4,000 per student, per academic year for Foundation scholarships. However, some exceptions may apply. 

Scholarships offer a good way to help pay for your education. Thousands of scholarships are available each year, and every one of them has its own unique requirements. There are scholarships that match each individuals skills, interests, heritage, and field of study. Also, it is important to be sure to keep track of academic achievements, work experience, and extracurricular activities. Many scholarships are based on the recipients involvement in certain activities and/or association with particular groups.

HINT: Many scholarship opportunities require the completion of a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Be sure to file your application as soon as possible!
