Scholarships are provided through Rowan-Cabarrus Community College Foundation and the generosity many individuals, organizations, and businesses within our region. A scholarship review team determines the recipient for those scholarships awarded by the College. Students who are on academic or financial aid suspension are ineligible for scholarships.

The scholarship program consists of two kinds of awards: merit-based scholarships and need-based scholarships. Scholarships are also awarded on a competitive basis applying the following criteria: academic excellence, achievement, leadership qualities, need or other criteria as stipulated by contributors.

Awards are usually restricted to tuition assistance and require the recipient to maintain a minimum GPA to continue the scholarship. Awarded funds that are not used during the academic year are returned to the scholarship and do not carry over from year to year. Students must re-submit a scholarship application every year.

Scholarship applications for the 2017-2018 academic year are now closed.  We encourage you to apply for scholarships for the 2018-2019 academic year when they open in early Spring 2018.
