Financial Aid - Scholarships

Thank you for your interest in Santa Fe Community College. SFCC offers scholarships that are based on a variety of factors or criteria specified by the donor. Scholarships are considered part of SFCC's financial aid program and awards; therefore, the Financial Aid Office may reduce other aid already approved to prevent giving financial assistance in excess of unmet need (over-awarding) if a scholarship is awarded.

If you are interested in external scholarships please go to our External Scholarships and Scholarship Resources links for more information.

The general eligibility requirements for all SFCC scholarships include:

  • Enrollment of no fewer that six credit hours
  • Term and Cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.5 or higher
  • Declared Major
  • Completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
