How to Accept & Use Foundation Scholarships

Accepting your scholarship

If you were awarded an SPSCC Foundation Scholarship, you must complete the following requirements and meet deadlines in order to receive the scholarship. Not meeting these requirements can lead to the withdrawal of your scholarship.

You have until December 9th, 2022 to complete the acceptance process.

Requirements include:

  1. Accept the scholarship by logging in at SPSCC AcademicWorks.
  2. Submit the Post-Acceptance Questionnaire by logging into your AcademicWorks account, clicking "Finish" under the scholarship(s) you have been awarded and completing the items under the Supplemental Questions tab
  3. Acknowledge any special requirements for the scholarship, such as:
    • Minimum grade point average (GPA)
    • Academic and leadership achievement
    • Registration in a minimum number of credits
    • Educational purpose – program or degree
    • Attend service group meeting or special event related to the donor of the scholarship you have received

Using your scholarship

  • Foundation scholarships are applied directly to Tuition and Fees. You will see the funds applied during the first two weeks of Winter Quarter 2023. Contact your Financial Aid Advisor or the Financial Aid Department at if you have questions or need to request changes. 
  • Scholarships that are $1,000 or less are typically applied in full to the next quarter's tuition and fees. Your other forms of Financial Aid may be adjusted in order to fit in the full scholarship award within your aid package. Scholarships over $1,000 may be split equally over the coming academic year (ex: $1,500 = $500 per quarter Fall/Winter/Spring). 
  • Foundation scholarships are for use at SPSCC only and are not transferable to other institutions. Please contact the Financial Aid Office if you do not plan to attend SPSCC.
  • You have until June 30, 2023 to use your scholarship.


  • If you are eligible to receive a refund of aid, you will need to establish a refund preference. See Financial Aid Refunds > Refund preference options.
  • If you have already established a refund choice through BankMobile, you do not need to update your preference.

Other financial resources

You are required to notify the Financial Aid Office of any educational assistance you receive. Please notify as soon as you know you are receiving funds so that we may coordinate the aid with the rest of your financial aid package.

Failure to report other financial resources can cause an over award of funds. In some cases this could result in a loss of future quarter aid, or require repayment of federal or state funds.

Examples of educational assistance include:

  • External Scholarships
  • Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR)
  • Labor & Industries
  • Employment Security
  • Tribal
  • Other Outside Assistance Received for Education Expenses
