Applications are available online for tuition waivers and scholarships for current and prospective Redlands Community College students. Tuition waiver scholarships range from $250 to $1,000 for each academic year, while the Redlands Community College Foundation offers nearly 40 scholarships. High school juniors and seniors can also apply for a scholarship to offset fees associated with concurrent classes.
“We are pleased to be able to offer students a way to make a college education more affordable,” said Redlands President Jack Bryant. “Financial aid is necessary for so many students, and these tuition waivers and foundation scholarships help fill the financial gap for Redlands students.”
The foundation offers a variety of scholarships, including awards designated for graduates of Calumet, Okarche and El Reno; scholarships for specific areas of study; and other more general scholarships.
A list of foundation scholarships and their criteria is available online at www.redlandscc.edu/scholarships. Most foundation scholarship applications are due March 1, and recipients will be notified in April. However, applications for nursing scholarships are due May 31, and notifications are sent in June.
Tuition waiver scholarships are awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis to qualified applicants. Applications are also due March 1, and recipients will be notified by mid-March.
High school juniors and seniors are able to take college courses tuition free, but they are still responsible for fees associated with the classes. The Redlands Foundation has established a scholarship to help cover those fees which could allow these students to take completely free classes. Scholarships are available for the Fall and Spring semesters, so students must apply for each semester. The scholarship does not cover the cost of textbooks or course materials.
