Applicants must have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher and plan to take six or more credit hours. The deadline to apply is April 15, 2017. Last year, the Foundation awarded more than 800 scholarships to GCSC students totaling more than $900,000.

“In most cases, our scholarships can be used to help cover about 45% of a student’s tuition expenses,” said Dunkin McLane, Assistant Director of the GCSC Foundation. “They can be used to help cover tuition, books and other educational costs. If you’re planning to take classes in the fall, now is the time to apply.”
