All Opportunities

UPDATE STUDENTS: Thank you for visiting the new Oakland Community College Student Online Scholarships *OCC-SOS website. Our IT department has been working to resolve the OCC Student Online Scholarships login issue. As a temporary work around, you can access the OCC-SOS site by typing in “OCCNT\studentloginname” (example: OCCNT\Doe.Jane) and your password. BE SURE TO SIGN OUT AFTER YOU HAVE FINISHED. As a security measure, you will generally not be able to access this site from OCC provided campus computers such as library, labs, and classrooms. Thank you for your patience. If you have questions, please contact the Foundation at 248.341.2137.

OCC-SOS is a web-based scholarship application system through AcademicWorks. OCC students must use this site to complete applications for many of our Foundation Scholarships. Foundation scholarships are available due to generous donors who have contributed to the College.

If you are signed-in, then this screen will simply show a list of all active scholarships on our campus at this time. The majority of these scholarships are automatically matching which means there is no further action that needs to be taken — you will be automatically considered for these scholarships if you meet the qualifications.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are a student and this is your first time visiting the scholarship system, you must sign in before you can proceed with the application process.

You are welcome to browse through this page and apply for any supplemental scholarships for which you believe you qualify. We recommend that you jump over to the Recommended Opportunities page in order to see a list of scholarships that you are more likely to qualify for.
