Each year, numerous scholarships are made available at OCC through private contributions. When available scholarships are open
for application (generally July & November) criteria and scholarship applications are available through the office of
Financial Assistance and Scholarships. Gifts of any size may be added to existing named scholarships (see list below).
Named Annual Scholarships require a minimum gift of $1,000 and are awarded within the academic year in which they are contributed.
Named Endowed Scholarships retain a permanent principal. Endowed scholarships create an enduring legacy for the donor and a lasting source of financial support for OCC students. Endowed scholarships require a minimum gift of
$10,000 which may be paid over a period of three to five years. Additional gifts may be made to the principal to increase the size of scholarship awards overtime.
