Get help paying for your education. Scholarships may be used for tuition and fees, books and supplies or other related expenses.
When to Apply
2019-2020 academic year application period will open March 1, 2019.
The application period for the upcoming academic year opens on March 1 and the majority of scholarships are awarded from April 1 through July 31. Most scholarships 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.
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.
Foundation scholarships are used first toward tuition and fees. Federal and state monies are used to pay remaining expenses.
How to Apply
- Apply for admission to Thomas Nelson Community College.
- Apply for Federal Financial Aid if the scholarship lists a financial need requirement.
- Submit the online scholarship application using your MyTNCC username and password to sign 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.
