We are thrilled that you are a part of the Coastal Carolina Community. Being an active student provides you with an array of scholarship opportunities for which you may qualify. You only need to complete ONE application for Coastal Carolina Community College Foundation scholarships, and it is valid for the entire academic year. We want your attendance at Coastal to be successful and productive. Please read the following instructions and maximize your opportunity to fund the costs of college.
- Please complete your admissions application first.
- All applicants must have a minimum of a 2.0 GPA to be considered for a Coastal Carolina Community College Foundation scholarship.
- Please note that many scholarships require a minimum 3.0 GPA.
- Many scholarships are based on financial need. We can best determine need based on information you provide at www.fafsa.gov. This is the same application you will fill out for Federal Pell Grants. Even if you do not qualify for grants, it is still necessary to complete this application.
- It is requested that you provide a copy of your High School or college transcript. If you have attended college for at least two semesters, only your college transcripts are required. If your transcripts are at Coastal, you must request they be forwarded from the Registrar’s Office.
- This application must be completed in its entirety.
- Next we ask that you submit a one-page essay regarding your character, academic goals, financial need and community service. Complete this document and submit with application.
- Lastly we ask for two letters of recommendation. Letters should address financial need, academic performance, and/or general character. Letters may be obtained from instructors, clergy, or employers. Recommendations cannot be from a relative.
- Please submit the letters of recommendation to Lorraine Fritter in the office of Public Information through mail, delivery in person, or email FritterL@coastalcarolina.edu. Emailed letters must come directly from the letter writers.
