Current and potential DACC students have until Wednesday, February 21 to complete a DACC Foundation scholarship application for the upcoming 2018-2019 academic year. The process is completely online this year and can be accessed from the following link: https://www.dacc.edu/foundation/scholarship. In order to apply for scholarships at Danville Area Community College, you must have your DACC user id and login information. If you do not have a username and id, please complete the application for admission at https://dacc.edu/ar/application. Please email the completed application to email@example.com. For questions on admissions, please call 217-443-8800. For any questions regarding the scholarship site, please contact Gina Davis at 217-443-8893 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. As always, completing one application is sufficient for consideration in any scholarship pool for which the applicant qualifies.
Last year the Foundation awarded 579 scholarships valued at over $730,000. More than 80 percent of those who applied received a scholarship award of some kind. Contrary to popular opinion, scholarships aren’t just for recent high school graduates. Any current or prospective student, full-time or part-time, online or on campus, traditional or non-traditional may apply and qualify for scholarship support from the DACC Foundation.
While we’re on the subject of money for education, remember that the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) has been available online since October 1, 2017 at https://fafsa.ed.gov/. You don’t need to wait to complete your 2017 taxes to apply, so be sure to complete the process as soon as possible for access to the most financial aid. We look forward to seeing you in class in the Fall!
