Delta College is currently accepting scholarship applications for the Fall 2018 and Winter 2019 semesters. The deadline to apply is February 22, 2018.
To begin the process, visit Delta College’s website at delta.edu/scholarships. Scholarships are made possible by generous supporters in our community.
Each year community members add new scholarships. For example, a new one this year is the Nathan Weidner Scholarship for high school seniors who live in Bay County. This scholarship is worth $3,000 per year for two consecutive years. It will be awarded to five students for the 2018-2019 year, and awarded to ten students each year thereafter. If you’re interested in this scholarship, simply apply online as you would for all the other scholarship opportunities.
Scholarship applications are accepted once per year. If you think you may attend Delta next year, you should apply. Also, you only need to complete one application, the scholarship software automatically matches you up to all the scholarships for which you are eligible.
Scholarships are awarded based on your answers two essay questions and other criteria, such as chosen curriculum, grade point average achieved, financial need or community services activities. Some scholarships require you to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), but others do not; however, it is in your best interest to complete the FAFSA. The FAFSA can be found online at www.fafsa.ed.gov.
For the 2017-2018 academic year, 583 students received privately funded Delta College Foundation scholarships totaling $590,222. In addition, community organizations and associations provided scholarships to 582 Delta students totaling an additional $591,082.
