Board of Trustees Academic Excellence Scholarship application

Non-Institutional Scholarships

Non-Institutional Scholarships are sponsored by a variety of organizations, and a limited number of applications are sent along with the scholarship posting. Students must follow the instructions and meet application deadlines noted in the scholarship profiles.

OCC does not assist in the development of the scholarship criteria nor participate in the screening and/or selection of the scholarship recipient(s) except as prescribed by the scholarship sponsors. OCC also does not approve/disapprove/endorse the scholarship organizations and provides the scholarship information as a public service.

Chancellor’s Scholarship

An OCC Chancellor’s Scholarship is available to each public/private high school and adult/alternative education center in Oakland County. The $2,500 scholarship covers full tuition and fees for the first year only. Applications are available from high schools and the adult/alternative education centers starting in November of each year. 

    Athletic Grants/Scholarships

    OCC offers scholarships to some exceptional student athletes for their active participation in the college's athletic programs. 

    Tax Credits, Hope Scholarships & Lifetime Learning Tax Credit

    Tax Credits can decrease the amount of money you owe for taxes or increase the amount of your tax return. Exact award amounts will vary. Consult with your tax advisor regarding eligibility requirements. 

    Technically a tax credit, the Hope Scholarship allows eligible students pursuing the first two years of post-secondary education to receive tax credits for tuition and fees. If you are not eligible for the Hope Scholarship or if you have already attended your first two years of post-secondary education, you may be eligible for the Lifetime Learning Tax Credit. 

    Winter 2017 Foundation Scholarships

    Please submit your scholarship application(s) to the campus at which you have financial aid.  Be sure your application(s) are legible, complete, and accurate.  
    The scholarship application is a fillable form.  Please type your information directly on the application.  

    Please do your part to ensure our donors continue to contribute to OCC's Foundation Scholarships. Remember to write a thank-you letter if you are awarded a scholarship.
