Honoring Military Families

About the Scholarship

The Board of Trustees Honoring Military Families Scholarship is for dependents of military personnel (current and prior) at St. Charles Community College who have demonstrated an academic aptitude.  St. Charles Community College and the Board of Trustees recognize and support the educational aspirations of the military family members who have shared in the sacrifices of service to this country.

Scholarship award amount: In-district tuition rate for fall and spring semesters (up to four total semesters). The Board of Trustees Honoring Military Families Scholarship is a tuition waiver that covers the in-district rate of tuition. Recipients who live out-of-district will need to pay the difference between the in-district and out-of-district rate per credit hour total. The scholarship does not cover fees. Scholarship applications are accepted until funding is exhausted.

Qualifying Criteria: To be eligible the student must be a legally dependent son, daughter or spouse of a current military service member or an honorably discharged veteran. You may be asked to provide proof of eligibility.

The student must also plan to attend SCC and meet one of the following:

  • 3.0 cumulative GPA
  • A score of 2700 or higher on the GED Exam or a score of 68 or on the HiSet exam
  • A score 23 or higher on the ACT

Renewing Criteria: The scholarship is automatically renewed for up to three additional semesters (excluding summer terms) if a 2.50 cumulative GPA is achieved and at least 6 credit hours are completed. If a student fails to enroll or complete 6 credit hours or their cumulative GPA drops below a 2.50, the student will forfeit his/her scholarship.
