 North Central Texas College is now accepting scholarship applications for the Spring 2019 semester.  Below is a list of important information to note and share with students.

  • If a student is NEW to NCTC, the student must APPLY for Admission now through Apply Texas.
  • NCTC Foundation Scholarship applications are only accepted through our Scholarship Program.
  • Please see the Scholarship Application Guide for step-by-step instructions.
  • The General Scholarship Application is for both dual credit and non-dual credit applicants.
  • If a student submitted a scholarship application for the fall 2017 semester, please ask him/her to Sign-In to his/her scholarship account and make sure Spring 2018 is also selected and indicate in the application how many hours he/she plans to enroll for the spring semester.  We will be pulling applications based on those two fields.
  • New scholarship applications will have a Finish and Submit button.  This must be selected in order for the application to be successfully submitted.
  • For applications submitted previously, there is not a Finish and Submit option.  Students can revise an existing application.  Once revisions are made the student will see Update Your Application.  This should be selected to save any changes to already submitted applications.
  • If a student does not have a NCTC GPA or have a high school transcript on file with the Office of Admissions/Registrar, then a high school transcript will be needed.   The student can either upload the transcript into his/her scholarship application OR submit an official one to the Admissions/Registrar’s office.  Caution should be noted for last minute applicants as there may be a delay in the time when the Admissions/Registrar’s office receives the transcript and when it is visible to the Scholarship office to add to the applicant’s scholarship application.  If this is the case, it is recommended for the student to upload the transcript directly into his/her scholarship application. Only completed scholarship applications will be sent to Scholarship Reviewers.
  • New 9th graders without a high school transcript or NCTC GPA may upload their 8th grade report card into their scholarship application.
  • Deadline is October 15th at midnight.
  • Email notifications will be sent to each applicant by the end of November after selections have been made to let him/her know if a scholarship has been awarded or not.
  • Current scholarship applications will be archived in January and we will start with new applications next March.
  • Students who qualify for the Federal Free and Reduced Lunch Program are not eligible for NCTC Foundation scholarships because NCTC offers the Dual Credit Free & Reduced Tuition Grant. 
  • We have scheduled Scholarship Workshops on each NCTC campus to assist students.  See header above for dates and times.
  • Questions?  Contact Kim Carroll at or call 940-668-7731 ext. 4907.


ABODO is a $500 scholarship to help any high school student that will be attending college.
Currently, billions of dollars are set aside each year specifically for Asian Americans, African American, Hispanic American, and Native American students. This funding is open to minorities at any level (high school through postdoctoral) for a variety of activities including study, research, travel, training, career development and creative projects.

While numerous listings provide general financial aid opportunities, there seems to be a lack of online scholarship listings specifically for minority groups. As a result, many advisors, librarians,scholars, researchers and students often have been unaware of the extensive funding opportunities available to minority groups.

We wanted to change this by providing an extensive listing of scholarships and grant opportunities for all student groups:

To help increase awareness around the extensive college funding opportunities provided for minority students the Open Education Data Base for Minority Students has sent us this information.  Please follow these links.
