Private Scholarships

Every year many organizations contact Oakton Community College by sending information regarding their scholarship program. Please check the list of private scholarships from companies and many different organizations that are willing to help students with school-related expenses.

Please be advised that in most cases you must contact the donor directly, either through their Web site or the name and the contact information provided.

Oakton Community College tries to provide current information, however some of the details may have to be verified with the scholarship donors.
