Scholarship Opportunity Knocking on Your Window

by Celina Simmons

Hey everyone, did you know that SMCC has a ton of scholarship opportunities available to you?

This is your chance to get extra money and many students who apply actually get a few classes paid for. That’s why I want to encourage you all to apply! I have applied and you should too! it never hurts to try, so spread the good word.

Applications are now open for the 2020-2021 academic year.  The deadline is Wednesday,
September 9, 2020 at 5:00 PM. You can access the application by:
● Going to My Money on the SMCC student portal and clicking on the "SMCC
Foundation scholarship" in the What to Do section under Financial Aid, or
● Going to on the SMCC website for directions on how
to apply.

By completing the online application, you are automatically considered for scholarships offered by the SMCC Foundation, the Maine Community College System and the Foundation for Maine’s Community Colleges. Although not required, they recommend that you complete the “personal statement” section of the application to help them better understand your circumstances.

Over 800 students applied for approximately 250 scholarships last year, so it is important, regardless, that you submit a personal statement to make a strong case for yourself!  A small investment of time completing the application could result in hundreds of dollars in scholarship aid for your education. Plus, you can use it as a reference or starting point for other scholarship applications in the future!

If you have any technical questions, please contact the IT Help Desk at 741-5696
or For any other questions, contact the SMCC Foundation Office
at or 741-5559.
