External Opportunities

Private organizations including businesses, churches, civic groups, and clubs make scholarships available to deserving students. Check your local library, online scholarship search engines, and private organizations for other opportunities.

Due to a high volume of requests, ACC cannot post all outside scholarship opportunities on its website. The college lists opportunities provided by local donors specifically aimed at local Central Texas students.

To request a scholarship be added to this list, contact scholarships@austincc.edu.

WARNING: Beware of scholarship scams!

The information provided in this section is for informational purposes only. It is the responsibility of the student to verify all information related to the scholarship application, including any requirements and related deadlines.
