Thank you for visiting Westchester Community College’s Scholarship website! Since 2007, the Westchester Community College Foundation has awarded in excess of $1 million dollars in annual scholarships to Westchester Community College students.

Your MyWCC Account:
Before you apply, please make sure you have activated your MyWCC account. Students must have an active MyWCC User ID and password in order to apply. (NOTE: In order to receive a MyWCC user ID, new, incoming students must first apply to, and be accepted at, Westchester Community College.)

After the application deadline, keep checking your MyWCC account to see if you were recommended for a scholarship. Be sure that your email address will allow you to receive scholarship communications from scholarships@sunywcc.edu! PLEASE NOTE: ALL COLLEGE COMMUNICATIONS WILL BE SENT TO YOUR @MY.SUNYWCC.EDU EMAIL ADDRESS.

A Note About Our Scholarships:

  • 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. This does NOT, however, mean you will automatically receive a scholarship; it simply means you are being considered, and may not receive an award for the semester(s) for which you applied.
  • After a scholarship deadline has passed, the scholarship opportunity will close for the specific scholarship application season, and the system will list it as “ENDED.” This does NOT mean the scholarship opportunity has been discontinued; simply that the deadline has passed.
  • 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.

QUESTIONS? Please contact the Scholarship Office at 914-606-6442, or at scholarships@sunywcc.edu
