Thomas Nelson Educational Foundation, Inc. Scholarships
The application period for the 2018-2019 academic year is now open.
The primary period during which the Thomas Nelson Educational Foundation, Inc. (Foundation) makes the majority of its scholarship awards is from April 1st through July 31st for the upcoming school year with classes starting in late August. The application period for the upcoming academic year opens on March 1st. Most scholarship awards are an annual commitment for both the fall and spring semesters. However, the Foundation generally has some limited scholarship funding for the spring and summer semesters, so it is worth visiting this website in April and October to see if that is the case.
Foundation scholarships can be used for tuition, fees, books, supplies, and other related educational expenses. Foundation scholarships are used first toward tuition and fees. Federal and state monies are used to pay remaining expenses.
A minimum 2.0 GPA is required to receive and maintain a scholarship award, unless otherwise specified in the scholarship criteria description. A student must be making Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) to be eligible for scholarship assistance. If you are in default on any student loans, you will not be eligible for any scholarships. The Foundation reserves the right to adjust scholarship award amounts, as well as to revise the number of scholarships offered, without notice.
For additional information, contact the Foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (757) 825-2719, or visit us at the Hampton campus, Hampton III Building, Suite 716.
How to Apply
- Apply for admission to Thomas Nelson Community College.
- Federal Student Aid. Students do not need to apply for financial aid in order to receive some scholarships. Students need to apply for financial aid if the scholarship lists a financial need requirement. Use the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) website at www.fafsa.ed.gov to apply, and call the Financial Aid Office at 1-855-877-3945 with any questions.
- Complete an online Foundation Scholarship Application located at https://tncc.academicworks.com . Use your MyTNCC username and password to log in.
In order to be eligible for continued scholarship assistance, students must complete courses during the semester for which the scholarship is awarded and maintain GPA requirements. Students who withdraw from classes will not be eligible for a renewable scholarship to continue in subsequent semesters (i.e., a scholarship that is awarded in the fall and divided equally between the fall and spring semesters). Exceptions may be granted to the withdrawal policy. These exceptions will be based on individual circumstances. Requests for an exception must be submitted to the Educational Foundation in writing prior to the beginning of the next scholarship award period. Submission of a request for exception does not guarantee that an exception will be made.
