Applications Online for Hancock College Scholarships

Allan Hancock College students can now apply online for more than $500,000 in scholarships provided through the Allan Hancock College Foundation. The application period opened this week and runs through Feb. 21.

“We encourage all Allan Hancock College students to go online and apply now,” said Toni McCracken, the scholarship program coordinator. “There is no application fee, so it costs students nothing, and the rewards could be significant.”

Last year, the foundation awarded a record 470 scholarships worth more than $500,000 to a record 394 students. Scholarships ranged from $500-$10,000.

To be eligible, students must complete six or more units at Hancock in both the fall 2017 and spring 2018 semesters, and have a cumulative 3.0 or higher grade point average.

Students can complete the entire application process and view all scholarship opportunities online. The scholarship application is available at

“We are so grateful to our community donors who have built the scholarship program with their amazing generosity,” said McCracken. “The foundation is able to reward hundreds of students for their hard work thanks to the tremendous community support.”

Questions about the online application should be directed to [email protected] or call the Hancock Financial Aid office, 922-6966 ext. 3200 or toll free, 1-866-342-5242, ext. 3200.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
