Transforming lives through education
The Holyoke Community College Foundation offers more than $250,000 in life-changing scholarships each year to new, current, and transferring students. This is money that our students never have to pay back. Scholarship awards can be spent on tuition, and it can also be used for books and other resources depending on the award and award amount.

Growing up in a less privileged community has helped me realize the value of a college education. This scholarship will allow me to focus on my studies more & grow as an individual."
