The Niagara County Community College Foundation is offering scholarships for incoming and current students for the fall semester.
The Distinguished Student Scholarship is the college's most prestigious award given to high school seniors in Niagara County. The DSS is two years of tuition-free education at NCCC for students who exemplify superior academics, community service and a commitment to Niagara County (including plans to remain in the county upon graduation). Applications are due March 27.
Additional general scholarships are available for part-and full-time students who are incoming or currently enrolled in classes. Funds for these scholarships come from donations by local businesses, individuals, foundations, memorial gifts, bequests and revenue from the annual scholarship gala. During the 2013-14 academic year, the NCCC Foundation awarded more than $160,000 to more than 200 students. Applications for general scholarships are due May 1.
