These scholarships are an admirable way for talented students to start their higher education experience. The Chancellor's Scholarships are awarded each year to one student from each Oakland County high school (public, private, charter, or home school - home schools must be connected with an association), and one student from each qualified adult/alternative education school. The award is for $3,500 ($1,750 for the fall semester and $1,750 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.
