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
  • if you are receiving other financial aid for the academic year, your scholarship award may be reduced to remain in compliance with federal student aid regulations regarding the amount of aid a student may receive for a semester

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
