I don't know about you, but I have missed many scholarship opportunities because of printer issues, missed deadlines, or lost paperwork.
On March 1, the DCCCD Foundation will launch
myScholarships, DCCCD's new online scholarship application system. Yes, it is
Here's how it works: You fill out
one simple (and secure) scholarship application online. This takes a few short
minutes. You are then automatically considered for multiple financial award opportunities, including scholarships based on academic excellence, financial need, leadership and achievement, to name a few.
To access myScholarships visit foundation.dcccd.edu/scholarships. The application period for Fall 2016 scholarships is
March 1 - June 1, 2016.
Insider tip: Answer the additional
supplemental questions to check your eligibility for additional scholarships. Also, check out
keyword search to explore all the scholarships in the system.
Muse scholarships will
not be included in the new myScholarship online application system this spring. To apply for these scholarships, you must submit the hard-copy application forms by
April 1, 2016. You can access the print application forms for each of these scholarships by selecting the links above.
Insider tip: If you are submitting letters of recommendation with your scholarship application(s), do not wait until the last minute. Give the person recommending you adequate time to write your recommendation letter.
If you have any questions regarding myScholarship, reach out to Shad Rasco, Senior Director of Operations, at
firstname.lastname@example.org or 214-378-1532. You can also contact the DCCCD Foundation directly at 214-378-1531.
