Scholarships

Scholarships are a form of financial aid that typically does not need to be repaid. A variety of scholarships are available to both first time and returning students through Hocking College, Hocking College Foundation and outside sources. If you are looking for additional financial aid to achieve your academic goals, you may want to consider applying for scholarships.

How do I apply for Hocking College and Hocking College Foundation Scholarships?

One application is used to determine eligibility for over 30 different scholarships from Hocking College and Hocking College Foundation. The application is available online and completed applications are due by March 14 for the upcoming academic year.

The scholarship application asks you to answer essay questions regarding your college and career goals, demonstration of leadership and financial hurdles to achieving your academic goals. The essay questions are your chance to explain why you are in need of a scholarship and to highlight the reasons why you deserve the award. You should think of your answers to the essay questions in advance and spend some time writing good, detailed answers.

The online scholarship system allows you to save your application and go back to it later so you do not need to complete it all in one sitting. However, you do have to have the entire application completed, including essays, attachments and recommendations before the deadline in order to be considered.
