Seniors: Angelina College Scholarship Information

The AC Scholarship deadline is approaching quickly! Applications are due March 21st. I've got a few new resources for you and a few reminders about specific scholarships listed below. 
New Resources:
Video Tutorials: To help students understand the step-by-step process of applying for scholarships at AC I have created two video tutorials. The first is an extended version to use if showing to a class. I've sent to our online classes who aren't able to meet for a workshop. It has more detailed information about the scholarships we offer and a few tips in creating the application. The second is a shorter version used mostly on social media and shared with student emails. Please share the videos with your students who plan on attending AC. 
Frequently Asked Questions: I have attached a FAQ document with answers to the most common questions to have at your convenience. As always, still feel free to call or email with any questions. 
Flyer: This resource isn't new, but I've been asked about what to hand to students for information since the application is online. I know many of you have scholarship application shelves, this is great to print out copies for students to pick up. 
Students May Qualify For:
Smith-Hutson Scholarship: The Smith-Hutson Scholarship will cover tuition and fees, books, and some commuting or living expenses in combination with a student's financial aid. Awards are selected on academic potential and financial need. This scholarship works really well for a student with a partial Pell Grant or some state grant funds. To apply, students must complete the general scholarship application, then click the Opportunities tab, and complete the supplemental questions for Smith-Hutson. 
*Forget the paper applications this year! - These applications are almost two-in-one since the Smith-Hutson application builds off the student's general scholarship application. Learn more about Smith-Hutson at 
T.L.L. Temple Foundation 21st Century Scholars Award: These scholarships are provided by the T.L.L. Temple Foundation for high school graduates in the following counties: Angelina, Cherokee, Houston, Jasper, Nacogdoches, Newton, Polk, Sabine, San Augustine, Trinity, or Tyler. Students are selected based on their class rank and entrance exam scores. The first students to apply in the top 20% of their graduating class with minimum SAT scores of 950 or an ACT composite score of at least 19 will be awarded. The Temple scholarships are $750 per semester for 4 semesters. Students apply by completing the general application. 
*There is an award designated for each of the 44 high schools this scholarship awards. We understand some of the schools in these counties have small graduating classes and not many in the top 20%. If students are close to meeting the qualifications, please have them apply.
Angelina Challenge Award: To be eligible for this award, students must complete the FAFSA as well as an Angelina College general scholarship application, and must not qualify for more than $1,000 in financial aid (i.e. Pell, other federal and state grants, Angelina College scholarships and other aid) during the academic year. 
*For the 17-18 academic year the Angelina Challenge Award is increasing to $1,000 per semester for 2 semesters. This award cannot be applied in the summer. Students apply for the Angelina Challenge Award by completing the general application.
