Joliet Junior College Scholarships



The scholarship awarding process for Fall 2016 is underway.

Go to to check your

AwardSpring Dashboard for updates.

Awarding information is being sent to the email provided in your application.





Scholarships are started by donors and are a resource that you do not repay. They are awarded for various reasons such as academic standing, leadership, specialized talents, ethnic origin, or financial need. Scholarships are available whether you are just beginning your JJC studies or are near graduation. 

  • Scholarships have varied criteria and many of the scholarships are "need based" and require completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
  • When applying, students must meet all criteria for each scholarship to be considered for that scholarship.
  • Scholarships will be awarded annually, starting in the fall semester and must be used during the academic year for which they are awarded.


 MAP Grants are limited based on the number of applicants and funding levels appropriated by the Illinois General Assembly.

With such fiscal uncertainty at the state level, it is important that you know a delay in MAP disbursement or a cancelation of your estimate MAP award could occur due to this situation. 


 Undocumented Students:

If you are an undocumented student, please contact JJC's Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMSA) 

for assistance with completion of your personal financial statement. 

Visit OMSA in room A-1107 or call 815-280-2829.
