The Foundation for New Hampshire Community Colleges offers financial support to students pursuing a certificate or associate degree program at any of NH’s community colleges.
During the 2021-22 academic year, The Foundation awarded more than $1.2 million to over 1,900 students, due in part to a collaboration with the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation to provide a free class to 2021 high school graduates. In a typical year, $450,000 – $550,000 is available for scholarship support to our students.
Registered students can apply using AwardSpring, our single online application, which automatically matches you with all scholarships for which you qualify.
The fall application cycle is open with deadlines varying by college. The spring scholarship cycle opens on November 7, 2022. To be considered for scholarships each semester, students must submit an application during each cycle.
