Get Money for Fall 2016 With myScholarships

This article appeared in a February 2016 issue of the student newsletter.

I don't know about you, but I have missed many scholarship opportunities because of printer issues, missed deadlines, or lost paperwork.

Never again.

On March 1, the DCCCD Foundation will launch myScholarships, DCCCD's new online scholarship application system. Yes, it is completely online.

Here's how it works: You fill out one simple (and secure) scholarship application online. This takes a few short minutes. You are then automatically considered for multiple financial award opportunities, including scholarships based on academic excellence, financial need, leadership​ and achievement, to name a few.

myScholarships Details & Deadlines

To access myScholarships visit foundation.dcccd.edu/scholarships. The application period for Fall 2016 scholarships is March 1 - June 1, 2016

Insider tip: Answer the additional supplemental questions to check your eligibility for additional scholarships. Also, check out keyword search to explore all the scholarships in the system.

Kramp, LeCroy and Muse Scholarships

The Kramp, LeCroy and Muse scholarships will not be included in the new myScholarship online application system this spring. To apply for these scholarships, you must submit the hard-copy application forms by April 1, 2016. You can access the print application forms for each of these scholarships by selecting the links above.

Insider tip: If you are submitting letters of recommendation with your scholarship application(s), do not wait until the last minute. Give the person recommending you adequate time to write your recommendation letter.
