HARRISBURG, Pennsylvania – The HACC Foundation spring scholarship cycle will open Feb. 2, 2015, with more than 200 scholarships available. HACC students are encouraged to apply by April 3, 2015, for funds that will financially assist them during the fall 2015 and spring 2016 terms.
Students receive scholarships and awards from the HACC Foundation as a result of charitable contributions from private and corporate donors throughout Central Pennsylvania. These scholarships and awards were established to provide educational opportunities for students who are in need, who are studying particular programs, who excel academically, who are involved in community service or who meet other criteria.
The HACC Foundation awarded 2013-14 scholarships to 845 students totaling nearly $1.1 million to be used for tuition and book costs.
Previous recipients commented on how their scholarship impacted their lives:

Students can apply online through AcademicWorks, a convenient scholarship management system that allows HACC to efficiently match students with relevant scholarship opportunities, manage awards and recognize scholarship donors. Students only need to apply once per cycle and are automatically matched to one or more scholarship opportunities based on specific criteria. An online video tutorial is available to provide instruction on how to easily navigate the scholarship application process.
