ACC Foundation Accepting Applications for $75,000 in Scholarships

The Alvin Community College Foundation Is now seeking applications for more than 50 scholarships available to area graduating high school seniors who wish to attend ACC in the Fall.

More than $75,000 is available through the scholarships offered.

“These scholarships make a tremendous difference in the lives of our students, their families and communities,” said Wendy Del Bello, ACC Foundation executive director. “The financial assistance that a scholarship provides can help students obtain their education and realize their dreams.”

One simple application makes students eligible for all scholarships. These scholarships may be awarded based on a variety of criteria including student need, GPA and intended major.

The deadline to apply for these scholarships is March 1. To apply, students need to visit and click on ‘scholarships’ for information and instructions. Graduating seniors can then apply to ‘Scholarships for Graduating Seniors’ in AcademicWorks, the ACC scholarship management program.

“It is extremely important to prepare your applications properly and get them in to be eligible for selection,” Del Bello.

Students needing assistance should also apply for Financial Aid by filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
