Our Opportunities

Welcome to the DMACC Foundation Scholarship Award Management System. The DMACC Foundation Scholarship Award Management System, allows a DMACC student to:

• Fill out one scholarship application to be considered for all scholarship opportunities at the DMACC Foundation.
• Be automatically matched to scholarship opportunities at the DMACC Foundation for which the student qualifies.
• Receive recommended additional scholarship opportunities to apply to by submitting additional information or answering a few additional questions.

To apply, please click the red Sign-In button located in the upper right-hand corner of this page. You will be prompted to enter your DMACC username (don’t use @dmacc.edu) and password. Once you sign-in, you will be directed to review your student information and complete the general application. You will be matched to potential scholarship opportunities based off the information in your student record and your answers to the general application questions. After you complete the general application, further review of each opportunity will be necessary to ascertain if you meet all requirements. You may be recommended to apply to additional scholarship opportunities. These recommended opportunities require additional information to determine eligibility. Next to each recommended opportunity, click “Apply” to review additional criteria and questions. If you are qualified, answer the questions and provide the additional information specific to each recommended scholarship, then click “Finish and Submit.”

Applications are read and scored by a group of volunteers. Please allow four to five weeks after the scholarship deadline to process your scholarship application. All scholarship notifications will be sent to the student’s DMACC email address.

Please Note: To ensure the best user experience, please use one of the following web browsers: Chrome, Safari, Edge, or Firefox.

Remember, students fill out ONE application to be considered for ALL scholarship opportunities through the DMACC Foundation Scholarship Award Management System. The scholarships offered through the DMACC Foundation were created by generous donors with specific criteria in mind. To learn more about specific scholarships you could be considered for, please see the list below.
