A wide range of scholarships are available through Atlantic Cape. Scholarships are available for new and current students. Atlantic Cape receives generous donations, and also raises funds through our Foundation.

Incoming students should apply early and if you are a high school student, adding our scholarship application to your list of things to do, along with your college application and Financial FAFSA application, is extremely important. Do not let popular misconceptions or scholarship myths scare you out of applying for awards. Landing an award is possible, especially if you meet specific criteria linked to your application. If you are already a student, make sure to apply in November through February. We understand the need for scholarships to help with college costs throughout your time here, and we have many scholarships available to help you with tuition, fees, and books.

Browse through our site to see if you meet the criteria for individual scholarships. Here is a list of currently available scholarships.

Scholarships are distributed to eligible applicants without regard to race, religion, age, physical handicap or national origin.

Phi Theta Kappa scholarships are available.  View the instructions at the Phi Theta Kappa scholarships page.
