Types of Scholarships

Foundation Scholarships

Alamance Community College has generous Foundation donors who help hundreds of Alamance Community College students go to school every year. Students must demonstrate academic promise with a 2.5 GPA and at least a 75% completion rate. To be considered for a Foundation Scholarship, students must fill out a FAFSA application and submit it to ACC.

Foundation scholarships are provided to cover gaps in a students financial aid package. Priority will go to students that do not have enough gift aid (Federal and State grants) to cover their outstanding tuition expenses. Based on your enrollment and the outstanding tuition due, your scholarship may be increased or decreased. Foundation scholarships will only cover the in state portion of the students outstanding tuition.
