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 18, 2020 (updated from Dec. 11) to complete the acceptance process.
- Accept the scholarship by logging in at SPSCC AcademicWorks.
- 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.
- Attend the Scholarship Reception in the Spring (tentative).
- 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
Using your scholarship
- Foundation scholarships are applied directly to Tuition and Fees.
- Scholarships that are $1,000 or less are typically applied in full to the next quarter's tuition and fees. 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, 2021 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
- Other Outside Assistance Received for Education Expenses
