Scholarships are private monies that are made available to students from various local community groups, corporate donors, and the College. They are forms of gift aid that does not need to be repaid or earned through employment.
Backed by a supportive community and generous alumni and friends, Navarro College is able to offer students a variety of scholarships. Due to differing requirements, expectations, and award amounts, please contact the Navarro College Foundation for more specific information with regard to a particular scholarship. By signing and accepting a scholarship, you are entering into a contract. Make sure you understand your responsibilities before you sign your scholarship.
