Automatic Consideration Scholarship List for New/Incoming Students

At FLCC, we offer a variety of scholarships for which you’ll automatically be considered that range from general interest to program-specific scholarships. To be considered for scholarship funds, all you have to do is apply and be accepted to FLCC by March 1, 2018 and have a high school transcript on file. It’s that simple! You won’t need to fill out a scholarship application.

If you apply to FLCC after the March 1 deadline, you may still be eligible for scholarships if funding remains available. To see which scholarships you’ll automatically be considered for, check out our scholarship list below.
