At North Country Community College we have Scholarships-4-Everyone.

This year we have more scholarship and grant funding for students than ever before! Every type of student is eligible so if you’re fresh out of high school or been away from education for a while we have a scholarship program that will fit you.


6 on Us Scholarship Program 
This grant-supported scholarship program allows new students (or returning students that have stepped away from college at least three years) to take up to 6 credits for FREE! Students will receive added support through the new North Country Navigator mentorship program. Apply for the Scholarship Here.
NCCC Foundation Opportunity Scholarship
For full-time and part-time degree-seeking students that DO NOT qualify for the Essex/Franklin Scholars Award, Hodson, or 6 on Us scholarship programs. Students will receive added support through the new North Country Navigator mentorship program. Apply for the Scholarship Here.
Essex and Franklin Scholars Awards (15 credits per semester required) 
For first-time students who reside in Essex or Franklin counties (New York State only) and who have graduated from a public high school in Essex or Franklin counties, this award covers up to the full cost of tuition for four semesters. Students must graduate high school with an 85% cumulative average and have a New York State Regents Diploma with Advance Designation. There’s no scholarship application required as these funds are automatically awarded as students register for courses. To be eligible, students must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and a NYS TAP Application (below). 
NCCC Foundation Scholarships
Providing student scholarships and awards is a top priority for the NCCC Foundation. The generosity of donors allows us to make available a variety of scholarships and awards each year so that a college education can be within reach of every student.

Human and Emergency Services Scholarships

For new students entering the fall semester who are going into the Chemical Dependency Counseling, Child & Family Services, Human Services, and Advanced Emergency Medical Technician programs. Scholarships will be available to students for up to two years and will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis until funding runs out. Apply, get accepted, and confirm your intent to register at the college then submit your FAFSA to be eligible for $1,000 up to full tuition paid. The scholarship application deadline is July 15, 2024. Apply for the Scholarship Here.

Additional Scholarships
There are many additional scholarships available to incoming and current North Country students on top of what we offer institutionally and from our foundation.  Our “Additional Scholarships” landing page is a repository for all outside scholarships that we have received notice of. These scholarships are administered by non-college entities making it your responsibility to research and apply for the scholarships that you feel are the best fit.  Visit the “Additional Scholarships” page regularly as we receive word of new scholarship programs quite often!
