This list identifies the scholarships and dollar amounts that we anticipate will be available to incoming students for the 2014 - 2015 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. Please note that there are also a few scholarships listed that fall outside of the Foundation's process and they may have different timelines and contacts to assist you as you apply.

All students who are accepted to FLCC for the fall 2014 semester prior to the scholarship application deadline (June 1), as well as all students who enter for the spring 2014 semester, are directed to www.flcc.edu/scholarships to access the online application.
