The Sussex County Community College Foundation awards scholarships to help support students with their college education. In Fall 2023 the Foundation awarded over $160,000 in scholarships.

All students are encouraged to apply for scholarships! The 2024-2025 application will be open between April 1-July 14, 2024.



Things to know before you apply

  • Students are encouraged to file a FAFSA application (International students are exempt) to qualify for many of our scholarships. It should take about 30 minutes of your time to file the online application. Students who do not file a FAFSA should still apply but will be eligible for fewer scholarships. Applicants who have not filed a FAFSA will only be considered for select Foundation Scholarships.  To complete your FAFSA application, visit
    If you have questions or require assistance, please contact our Financial Aid Office in the Administration Building (Bldg. B) at 973-300-2225.
  • Invite someone to submit a letter of recommendation on your behalf on AwardSpring. You will not be able to ‘click’ submit on your application until the letter of recommendation has been received. Make sure you log back into your account periodically to check the status. Follow up with the person you have requested it from to ensure they received the email request.
  • Need assistance writing your essay? Utilize ThinkingStorm, our online tutoring service.
  • After sending the request for the letter of recommendation, complete all other sections of the Application before the deadline.
