Students must have an active FRCC student email address in order to apply. The FRCC Foundation application is available online.

  • Students who have not previously applied need to select “Sign Up” using their FRCC student email address.
  • Once the student has signed up, an email will be sent to their student email address.
  • This email will contain a link to activate their account and select a password.
  • Once activation is successfully completed, students can use their student email address and the password they created to log in and apply for scholarships.

A student email address is assigned after an application to attend Front Range Community College (FRCC) is submitted and processed. A scholarship application can only be submitted after you've applied to FRCC and have a student email address. The FRCC Foundation scholarship application has no fee, no entrance exams, and will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. 

It is important to note that a student can receive a maximum of two scholarships per academic year from the FRCC Foundation.

Students may apply for many other scholarships through the FRCC Foundation general application, but are limited to only two per academic year.  Although students may use the same application, they may be asked to complete additional application materials such as submitting additional letters of recommendation, transcripts, and/or additional essay/short answer questions.

The FRCC Foundation scholarship application will ask students a series of questions in order to determine their eligibility for various scholarships. We ask that students answer the questions honestly and to the best of their ability. We understand that some questions, such as enrollment status for the upcoming year, may be challenging to determine so far in advance. As such, we ask students to answer based on what their intended plans are.  Students will be required to do a short essay. Some of the extra opportunities may require additional documents, such a transcripts and/or letters of recommendation.  The main application does not require letters of recommendation.

Letters of recommendation can come from a multitude of sources. Students are encouraged to ask for letters of recommendation from sources who know the students well. Some suggestions would be from a current, or former, employer, a current academic instructor, a mentor etc. but should not come from a family member. Letters of recommendation should come from sources who know the student well and can speak to why they would be a good candidate to receive a scholarship.

It is advisable to give someone three to four weeks minimum to write a letter of recommendation. When asking for letters of recommendation, asking in person, through email or by phone is always best. Be sure to use professional and appreciative language when making the request.

The essay should be two, double-spaced pages maximum and should answer the questions thoroughly. The essay portion is the most important part of the application process. Students are encouraged to have their essay reviewed by outside sources and to spend a considerable amount of time preparing their essay before it is submitted.

The FRCC Foundation essay question will be available by December 1st once student can sign in to the application.

Students will not be notified until after the application closes and applications are reviewed.  Notifications will be made throughout the summer and continue through the Fall semester.

  • Applications will be reviewed and eligibility requirements will be determined.
  • Once that has been completed, students will be notified though their FRCC student email, if they have been selected to receive a scholarship through the FRCC Foundation.
  • Selected students will be given further instructions about how to accept their scholarship (also through their FRCC student email).
