Scholarships & Awards

New SCC Equine Students should work with the SCC Financial Aid Office to determine eligibility and begin the financial aid process.

Existing Equine majors are eligible to apply for Equine Scholarships through one of two programs:

SCC Equine Science Award Program
The SCC Equine Science Awards Program is graciously funded by members of the Equine Community.  Awards may be given annually or per semester.
Award amounts will vary depending on program funding. Students must have completed six credits of Equine related classes with a minimum GPA. Existing Equine Students will be notified of application deadlines in class and via e-mail.

The Sherry Loring Scholarship and the Scarlett Impressive Scholarship. Awards range from $500 to $1200 annually. Students may receive an award from each of these funds only once.
