Scholarships

Scholarships enable students to achieve their dreams.

The Holyoke Community College Foundation offers more than $200,000 in life-changing scholarships each year to new, current, and transferring students. This is money that our students never have to pay back. 

The scholarship season has ended for 2020. We anticipate the 2021 scholarship season opening in February 2021. Be sure to watch your HCC email as well as HCC feeds on Instagram and Facebook for announcements and updates!
