Private Scholarships

Private (or Outside) Scholarships are those scholarships that are awarded to students by an organization other than Houston Community College (HCC). Students may be eligible for an outside award from a variety of sources including employers, unions, professional organizations, community, religious and special interest groups. These types of scholarships have specific application, eligibility requirements, and deadlines that are set by the donor organization.
