Scholarships–Nassau Community College
Nassau Community College makes scholarship monies available each year for a variety
of programs through the College Foundation Office and administered by the Scholarship
and Student Aid Committee of the Academic Senate.
Students are urged to apply for these scholarships by obtaining the proper forms from
the Financial Aid Office. For more information go to www.ncc.edu/scholarships.
Scholarship and awards are presented to incoming, returning, or graduating students
from funding by members of the College's faculty and staff, by campus groups, and
from local donor organizations and individuals.
Applications may be obtained from the Financial Aid Office on the 3rd floor of the
Administrative Tower and from the academic department offices, the College Transfer
Office in Nassau Hall, and the Nassau Community College Federation of Teachers Office.
Many students overlook the opportunity to receive private scholarships as a source
of financial assistance. Check with your employer,a parent's employer or a community
organization that assists its local residents. Don't overlook your high school guidance
counselor for scholarship information from your hometown and associated organizations.
There are scholarship opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate students in
all areas of study.
It is never too late to begin your search for scholarships. Apply for as many scholarships
as possible. Don't overlook small foundations. Identify your strengths. Keep track
of meritorious awards you have received, community volunteer work you have performed,
jobs you have held and special interests and hobbies that make you unique.
