Restricted Endowed Scholarship Application

Southwestern Michigan College offers a number of restricted endowed scholarships through the generous support and contributions of individuals and organizations throughout the community.

Scholarship awards are based on a number of factors, including but not limited to donor restrictions (such as curriculum), grade point average and need as determined by your current Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You must enroll in a minimum of six credit hours to be eligible for restricted endowed scholarships.

The college will notify students by email or phone if they are awarded a scholarship. Scholarship recipients are expected to write a brief letter of thanks to the scholarship donor. The scholarships you are eligible for will be determined by the information you provide below.
