The Parkland College Foundation is now accepting scholarship applications for Spring 2021 through the Parkland Scholarship Manager.
The Foundation will host a virtual scholarship workshop on Thursday, November 5, from noon to 1 p.m. via Zoom and streamed to Facebook, for current and prospective students interested in completing an application. The webinar will provide tips for completing the application, with a focus on essay-writing.
Current students are encouraged to apply for Spring 2021 scholarships, even if they are unsure if they'll be continuing in the spring. Prospective students must apply to Parkland College at parkland.edu/apply before they can apply for Parkland scholarships.
Current students can visit the Scholarship Manager and use their ParklandOne credentials to login. Once logged in, they will be asked to complete the main Scholarship Application, which will match them with scholarships they are eligible for through the Parkland College Foundation. Students must upload either two letters of recommendation or enter the email address for two recommenders and write an essay. Some scholarships may require additional information or essay work; students will see these additional opportunities once they have submitted the main Scholarship Application.
Once the Scholarship Application is submitted, the Parkland College Foundation committee will appoint the scholarships and notify the winners. Online notification and distribution of awards will be handled through the Scholarship Manager system.
Applications for Spring 2021 scholarships are due Monday, November 16, at 5 p.m.
For need-based scholarships, students must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at https://studentaid.gov/h/apply-for-aid/fafsa. FASFAs must be submitted by November 16, 2020.
