Rolling Scholarship Information

North Orange Continuing Education seeks to meet the financial needs of students in two different ways.

  1. The yearly scholarship program [dates in the green section below] are awarded in May each year.
  2. The provision of select and limited scholarships throughout the year are called "rolling scholarships" because they do not have a deadline and students can apply for them from August through December each year.

Beginning in July of each year this page will include a list of rolling scholarships available to students who experience a financial need to continue progress in their courses.

In an effort to sustain NOCE scholarships for many years to come and to assist as many students as possible the NOCE Scholarship committee has to limit the amount of awards given each year. The NOCE Scholarship committee is not able to award "rolling scholarships" to students who receive awards during January through May.

The following chart lists the nine rolling scholarships available until the 2017-2018 Scholarship season begins in January 2018. As these awards are given the opportunities decrease.
