FACC Accepting Scholarship Applications
The FACC Scholarship Committee is currently accepting applications for the $150 FACC Chapter Scholarship and the $500 FACC Foundation Scholarship; however, this term, applicants will notice some changes to the scholarships. The committee recently adjusted the FACC Chapter Scholarship criteria and expanded the use of the scholarship to cover a wider range of educational expenses. The scholarship is no longer limited to book reimbursements as it was previously. The committee will now also accept applications from chapter dependents enrolled at least half time in any accredited institution of higher education. These awards were previously limited only to dependents enrolled at SFCC.
To be eligible for the $150 FACC Chapter Scholarship, applicants must be an FACC member or dependent of a member, must have a high school or college-level grade point average of 2.5, must provide proof of enrollment, and must submit a complete scholarship application within the first 30 days of the term for which the scholarship is being requested. To meet the eligibility for the $500 FACC Foundation Scholarship, applicants must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form, must be a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen, must be enrolled at least half time (6 credit hours or 240 clock hours per term), and must submit a completed scholarship application.
The updated FACC scholarship criteria, FACC membership questionnaire, and application form is located in the FACC folder in Outlook. Applications for spring term scholarships are due to FACC President-Elect Keith Loweke by Friday, Jan. 29.
