SUMMER MOMENTUM SCHOLARSHIP: If you are looking to apply to the Summer Momentum scholarship, please note that you must complete the general application first, and then it will be recommended to you if you meet the qualifications.

Oakland Community College Foundation scholarships are offered to currently-enrolled OCC students without regard to race, gender, gender identity, color, ethnicity, or national origin, regardless of the scholarship’s title. For example, scholarships sponsored by women’s organizations are offered without a preference or restriction based on sex, are open to all genders, and are awarded without regard to the sex of the applicant.

If you are registered for less than 6 credits for the current semester and/or have not attended OCC in the last 2 years, you will not qualify for scholarships. Students who have the classification of High school Guest, High school Dual enrolled or College Guest cannot apply for Foundation scholarships.

Thank you for visiting the new Oakland Community College Student Online Scholarships OCC-SOS website. You will use your MYOCC username (ex: doe.jane) and password to log in to the site. If you have questions, please contact the Foundation at 248.341.2137.

*Please be sure to complete your General Application to be considered for an OCC Foundation Scholarship. *

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 to see a list of scholarships that you are more likely to qualify for.
