BLOUNTVILLE — Students need financial aid to attend college now more than ever. It is never too soon to submit a scholarship application to Northeast State Community College for the 2020-21 academic year.

The Northeast State Office of Scholarship Programs and Student Needs is accepting applications for Northeast State Foundation-related scholarships. The deadline to submit an application is March 1, 2020.

The scholarship programs office administers more than 200 Northeast State Foundation related scholarships to help students pay their college expenses. To be considered, students should submit the Northeast State General Scholarship Application to the Scholarship Programs office. First-time applicants to the college must also complete an application for admission.

Northeast State awards scholarships to qualifying applicants following a competitive review process. Foundation Scholarships may fund maintenance fees and even textbook costs for recipients.
