Eligibility

Foundation scholarship recipients must be…

  • Residents of ICC District #514 and be enrolled at ICC
  • A high school graduate or equivalent
  • Eligible to apply for Federal Aid (International students need to be in accordance with the eligible noncitizen requirements listed on the FAFSA form)
  • In good standing (2.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale) each semester and cumulatively and complete 67% of their enrolled classes with a grade of a C or better (Some scholarships require a higher GPA)
  • A non-recipient of a tuition waiver

Federal Aid in conjunction with Foundation Scholarships

  • Many scholarships require applicants to apply for Federal Aid (FAFSA)
  • Students need to seek Federal Aid prior to applying for a Foundation scholarship
  • Many students that do not qualify for Federal Aid may still qualify for a Foundation scholarship

Using Scholarship Funds

  • Foundation scholarships are for use at ICC — some exceptions are available for Transfer Scholarships
  • In an attempt to help as many students as possible, it is the policy of the Foundation to only award one Foundation scholarship per student
  • Specific amounts of scholarships awards vary depending upon available funds and may be adjusted based on hours of enrollment at the time the scholarship recipient's student account is credited
  • Foundation scholarships connect with student accounting to keep you from being dropped from classes — any remaining balance is your responsibility
  • Foundation scholarships are divided equally between the Fall and Spring semesters funding direct college costs (Tuition, books and supplies, and academic-related expenses — priority in that order and subject to each scholarship's allowances)
  • When using Foundation scholarship funds for purchasing books, visit the Scholarship Adviser in the Financial Assistance office first to establish bookstore credit
