Apply for a Scholarship

Applying For A Scholarship Is As Easy As 1, 2, 3.....Deadline April 17th at midnight!

We are so glad you are attending State College of Florida!

The application for Fall 2022-Spring 2023 has closed. If scholarship funds remain after the first round of awarding, the application will re-open from August 15 – September 15, 2022 for Spring 2023 scholarships only.

All students must reapply each year to qualify for SCF Foundation scholarships.

Am I Qualified?

The minimum qualifications for a State College of Florida Foundation scholarship are as follows:

Must be attending State College of Florida
Must be enrolled in at least 6 credit hours
Must maintain a minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA

Some of our scholarships have more specific requirements based on the donor’s criteria.

So… How does it work?

Our generous SCF Foundation donors make your scholarship funding possible. After you submit your application, a committee of reviewers scores your application. Based on these scores, scholarships are awarded to SCF degree-seeking students who meet the individual scholarship criteria.

SCF Foundation scholarships are awarded by year (Fall and Spring) unless otherwise noted in your offer e-mail. Our scholarships are designed to pay about half of the tuition and fees at State College of Florida (unless otherwise stated). They are NOT “full-ride” scholarships.

I’ve applied. Now what?

Once you’ve finished your general application and completed any additional “Apply-to” scholarships that may be open, your application is in review! We review hundreds of applications each year, so we ask for your patience. This process takes up to two months from the day the application officially closes (April 15 for the Fall-Spring application, September 15 for the Spring-only application). We ask that you check your SCF student e-mail frequently. Once your award notification is sent, you will have a two-week window to accept your offer(s) and upload your thank-you letter(s). If you do not complete those steps within two weeks, your offer(s) may be pulled and offered to another student. Time is of the essence!
