Scholarships encompass merit-based, need-based, and non-need-based monetary awards, varying from covering a portion of your tuition to fully funding your college education expenses. Importantly, they do not require repayment.

Harnessing scholarships represents an excellent means to access additional college funding. For Angeles College students, actively seeking scholarships that can reduce the need for excessive work or borrowing to fund education is vital. Opportunities may emerge as you advance through your core courses or become involved in community organizations. We strongly urge students to continually search for ?throughout their time at Angeles College.

Applying for Institutional Scholarships

Angeles College will post institutional scholarship opportunities as they become available.

Applying for Outside Scholarships

Students can independently research outside scholarships available through commercial or other private organizations online. These scholarships typically necessitate a distinct application, feature diverse deadlines and eligibility prerequisites, and may or may not entail an interview.

What is an Outside Scholarship?

Private donors offering external scholarships may also restrict them to specific expenses. In such cases, the Financial Aid Office, in collaboration with the Business Office, will apply the scholarships accordingly. This action may result in a reduction of previously awarded funds. Depending on the type of award and the purpose of the external scholarship, we may reduce institutional and/or donor-sponsored scholarships to rectify any excess.

Combining Scholarship Awards/Scholarship Over awards

I apologize for the oversight. Here’s the first sentence in active voice:

Generally, the award intended to cover charges cannot exceed the total amount awarded to a student. Scholarships do not reduce Federal Pell or SEOG Grants during the awarding process, as these funds can cover up to the full cost of attendance.

How Outside Scholarships Affect Your Financial Aid Package

A student cannot receive a total amount of student aid (including scholarships, grants, federal student loans, private student loans, and Federal Work-Study) that surpasses the student’s Cost of Attendance. For further details, please visit:

What to do if you receive an outside scholarship?

If you receive a scholarship from an OUTSIDE DONOR, follow these 4 steps:

  1. Request the outside scholarship make CHECKS PAYABLE to ANGELES COLLEGE.
  2. Give the donor your identifiers (eg. Full name, program you are enrolled in, cohort #) and ask them to include it with your award.
  3. Have the donor include a letter explaining the conditions of the award (if any) and what quarters/terms the scholarship is applied to when the check is sent to ANGELES COLLEGE.
  4. Make sure to contact the Financial Aid Office to report the award.
