A scholarship is a financial aid award that, like grants, does not have to be repaid.  Broward College offers scholarships based on merit, financial need, athletics, degree choice and more! Scholarship funding is limited and completion of the application does not guarantee an award.

You will not need to specify a particular scholarship on the application; we will match you to those for which you may be eligible.

To be considered for a scholarship you must: ​
  1. Complete all steps on Apply for Financial Aid. (International students are not required to complete the FAFSA.)
  2. Make sure you are admitted to the College in a degree or certificate program of study.
  3. Complete the online scholarship application. You must log into the application using your BC email and password.
  4. Have at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA.
  5. Meet Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP).
