Scholarships for Future Students

Looking to save money on college tuition? Our many scholarships make the cost of an FLCC education even more affordable, and we make the scholarship process easy, too. You will automatically be considered for scholarship funds without having to fill out a scholarship application.

To be considered for a scholarship, 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! If you apply to FLCC after the March 1 deadline, you may still be eligible for scholarships if funding remains available.

In addition to the many scholarships for which you'll be considered, (see the list here), we also have a list of specific scholarships available that require an FLCC Foundation scholarship application. You can check them out below.

Incoming Student Scholarships which require an FLCC Foundation scholarship application:
If you enter FLCC for the spring 2018 semester or if you are admitted to FLCC for the fall 2018 semester, you are eligible to apply for the FLCC Foundation scholarships listed below. Scholarship amounts typically range from $300 to full-tuition grants. The online scholarship application was available from March 2 - May 4.

This list identifies the scholarships and dollar amounts that we anticipate will be available to incoming students for the 2018 - 2019 academic year. Be advised that the list does change over time. New awards are added and current benefactors occasionally make decisions to change the criteria and/or the dollar amounts they provide.

  • To be eligible to receive a scholarship award, you must register for classes for the fall 2017 semester.
  • Your responses to the questions will identify the scholarships for which you are eligible and for which you will be considered.
  • Once all recipients are identified, e-mail notification will be sent to the FLCC e-mail addresses of both recipients and non-recipients.

Questions can be directed to or call 585.785.1205.
