Chancellor’s Scholarships

These scholarships are an admirable way for talented students to start their higher education experience.  The Chancellor's Scholarships are awarded to one student from each public or private Oakland County high school, and one student from each qualified Adult Education/Alternative Education Center each year.  The award is for $2,500 ($1,250 for the fall semester and $1,250 for the winter semester), is non-renewable, and is good only for the first academic year following the student’s graduation.

Recipients must attend Oakland Community College at least full-time (12 credit hours minimum) for both fall and winter semesters.  If the student does not attend classes, the scholarship is forfeited.
