Applying for Scholarships
Gogebic Community College offers a wide range of scholarships and awards to both freshman and sophomore students. Criteria and award amounts vary. Applications are submitted online through the Academic Works website. The typical application period is from January 1 through March 15, but there are scholarships that have later deadline dates. Students need to check the individual scholarship opportunity criteria for the individual deadline dates. The scholarships awarded in the Spring are to be used for the following academic year.
To apply for scholarships, students must be accepted to GCC and have been issued a Student ID number. They also have the capability to view all available scholarships as well as the scholarship criteria. Please note that students only need to fill out one application for all scholarships. The process automatically selects and sorts the students according to the eligibility criteria of the individual scholarships.
Students will be notified via their GCC e-mail if they were selected as a scholarship recipient. This notification is normally sent out within three weeks of the scholarship application deadline. If a student does not receive a scholarship during the first round of awarding, their application is stored in the data base for the entire academic year. Scholarships are awarded on a continual basis as new scholarships are received. Click on the below link to access the scholarship application.
We accept scholarship applications and award scholarships throughout the academic year. Please submit your application even though the original deadline date may have passed.
