Scholarship Application Deadline Approaching

The Southern Maine Community College Scholarship Application for the 2017-18 academic year is available and is due: Wednesday, September 6, 2017 at 5:00 PM.

You can access the application by:

  • Going to My Money on the SMCC student portal and clicking on the “SMCC Foundation scholarship” in the What to Do section under Financial Aid, or

When you apply, much of the online application will already be filled out with information you have provided to SMCC. You are automatically considered for any scholarship for which you qualify.  All interested students need to complete the application form and write a short personal statement to help the Foundation understand your circumstances.  There is also an opportunity to write a statement of financial need. This is especially important for students who have financial need, but do not qualify for federal financial aid.

Over 850 students applied for approximately 200 scholarships last year, so it’s important that you use the personal statement to make a strong a case for yourself.  A small investment of time completing the application could result in hundreds of dollars in scholarship that aid your education.

If you have any technical questions, please contact the IT Help Desk at 741-5696 or For any other questions, contact the SMCC Foundation Office at or 741-5559.

Best of luck in your educational endeavors.
