Our Opportunities

*Welcome to Haywood Community College’s Scholarship Application Portal. Summer and Fall applications will be open the week of March 9th, 2020.

To access the general scholarship application, please click “SIGN IN” in the top right hand corner of this screen, and then use your HCC email username and password to login and complete the general scholarship application.

Please keep in mind that:

  • You must have a 2019-20 FAFSA on file to be considered for a summer award and the*2020-21 FAFSA* for a fall scholarship.

The list below shows all scholarships, not scholarships for which you are receiving consideration. Automatch scholarships will appear with “None” listed under the “Action” column – this means an additional application is not required for consideration. The “Deadline” column indicates the deadline to complete the application to receive consideration. This is not the deadline to accept the award.

The following are current scholarship opportunities:
