Scholarships can be a helpful way to fund your educational goals. Northeast Iowa Community College awards more than $100,000 annually to new and continuing students, and the average scholarship is between $500-$700 for each student awarded.
Current NICC students should submit their scholarship application through eForms for the 2017-2018 academic year. The priority deadline to apply is Saturday, April 1, 2016.
If you are not yet an NICC student, but intend to apply and enroll, please complete this scholarship application electronically.
* If awarded a scholarship, the funding is applied directly to your student account. Students need to be enrolled and registered for that semester with NICC in order to receive the funding.
Dollars for Scholars Matching Funds
NICC will provide a one-time match, dollar for dollar, up to $150 of your local Dollars for Scholars Award. In order to receive the match, students must meet requirements prior to the matching fund being awarded:
- Successful completion of first semester at NICC (once the fall semester is completed satisfactorily the match would be applied to your student account for the spring semester)
- The annual funding for this program is limited and is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.
