External Opportunities

External scholarships are financial awards provided by organizations, corporations, foundations, or individuals outside of Dallas College. These scholarships are typically awarded based on various criteria. Here’s how they generally work:

  • Eligibility Criteria: Each scholarship has its own set of eligibility criteria.
  • Deadline: External scholarships have application deadlines that vary depending on the scholarship. It’s essential for you to pay attention to these deadlines and submit their applications on time.
  • Selection Process: Once the application deadline has passed, scholarship committees or sponsors review the applications and select recipients based on the criteria outlined in the scholarship guidelines. This process may involve multiple rounds of review and interviews.
  • Award Amount: The amount awarded through external scholarships varies widely. Some scholarships may cover the entire cost of tuition, while others may provide a smaller amount to help with educational expenses such as textbooks, housing, or transportation.
  • Renewal: Some external scholarships are renewable, meaning that recipients may receive the award for multiple semesters or years if they continue to meet the eligibility criteria and maintain satisfactory academic progress.
  • Impact on Financial Aid: It’s essential for students to understand how external scholarships may impact their financial aid packages. In some cases, receiving external scholarships may reduce the amount of need-based financial aid awarded by the college.
  • Searching for Scholarships: There are various ways for students to find external scholarships. They can search online scholarship databases, explore opportunities offered by professional organizations, community groups, and corporations, or inquire with their high school guidance counselors and college scholarship office.

Overall, external scholarships provide valuable financial support for college students and can help alleviate the burden of tuition and other educational expenses. Students should take advantage of these opportunities by actively seeking out and applying for scholarships for which they are eligible.
