Additional Information:
Scholarship Information:

  • Based on the information you entered in your online scholarship application, you will be AUTOMATICALLY MATCHED with some scholarship opportunities. This simply means you will be automatically considered for these scholarships, and that there is nothing further you need to do.
  • Only one application is required for you to be considered for the majority of our foundation scholarships.
  • However, in addition to general scholarships, you can also “APPLY” for specific scholarships. Once you have completed your application, view “RECOMMENDED OPPORTUNITIES” for those scholarships which you may be eligible for. This will prompt you to attach additional documentation to be considered for specific scholarships.
  • Once you submit your application, you will be able to go in and make changes up to the due date. After the due date, no additional changes will be accepted.
  • After the application deadline, keep checking your Ocean Connect account to see if you were recommended for a scholarship.

Document Information:

  • You will be required to upload documentation.
  • All uploaded documents need to be in Word, PDF or JPEG Format. We are unable to open MAC supported files.
  • You will need to scan the required attachments to a thumb drive, flash drive or directly to your computer so that you can upload the documents to your application as prompted.
  • If you do not have a scanner, this technology is available at the OCC Library.

Information provided here, and on the college’s main website, is subject to change. Due to funding, eligibility requirements, and other limitations, not all scholarships will be available for all semesters. In addition, amounts listed here are to be taken as guidelines only, and may be subject to change.
