Scholarship Opportunities for Graduating Frederick County Public High School Seniors

For further information, please speak to your high school guidance counselors.

Ambassador Scholarship

Each year, a selected group of Frederick County high school seniors are awarded the FCC Ambassador Scholarship for maintaining a 3.0 GPA through grades 9-12. It is awarded to students who have demonstrated leadership and attend the fall term following their graduation from high school. High school graduates who have a 3.0 in their first term at FCC will also be considered for the FCC Ambassador Scholarship for the spring term. Ambassador Scholars will be asked to participate in the Ambassador Program while at FCC. The Ambassador Program provides students an opportunity to volunteer for a minimum of ten hours per semester. Examples of opportunities may include providing campus tours, performing college outreach functions, assisting at college activities, etc.

Awards: Full-time students will receive $500 for the fall semester, renewable for up to three additional semesters, depending on maintenance of at least a 3.0 grade point average and participation in the Ambassador Program.

Applications are available through the FCC Foundation Scholarship website. Ambassador Scholarships are awarded based upon date of receipt of application and high school transcript to FCC. Public, private and home school students are encouraged to apply.
