With your support, we can ensure that our college’s life-changing opportunities are available to everyone.
Annual Scholarships are funded by the donor on a year-by-year basis. Establishing an annual scholarship will allow your gift to go to work immediately, helping AACC students achieve their academic dreams.
Endowed Scholarships are designed to be permanent, self-sustaining funds that will support students well into the future. When you create an endowed scholarship, you are creating a permanent legacy at AACC.

The Future Nursing Professionals Scholarship provides financial support to students enrolled in AACC's top-ranked nursing programs, giving them access to training with world-class professionals on state-of-the-art equipment. This scholarship is designed to ensure that all qualified, hardworking students who want to enter the nursing profession have the resources necessary to complete their education.
Careers in the skilled trades provide students with rewarding careers that pay family sustaining wages. The Clauson Center Trades Education Scholarship ensures that these careers are accessible to all members of our community. It provides support for students in programs offered in the Clauson Center for Innovation and Skilled Trades.
Students can face complex financial situations and barriers when working toward the completion of their associate degree. The Scholarship for Associate Degree Completion provides financial support for students who are within 15 credits of completing a credit degree program at AACC to support them on their path toward success.
The Pathways to Credit Studies Scholarship is open to AACC students in good academic standing who are pursuing a credit program regardless of program area or number of credits remaining. This scholarship may be used to cover tuition, fees and/or educational materials a student might need to successfully complete their courses.
The Access to Noncredit Studies Scholarship creates opportunities for students to pursue job training, professional skills and certifications. These scholarships support students interested in dental assisting, nursing assisting, veterinary assisting, administrative professional and more. Depending on the program, scholarship funds may cover tuition, fees and other necessary program expenses to help students kick-start their careers.
It is getting harder to fill the community’s 4,000 trades positions that are posted each year. At the same time, members of our community are looking to rebuild and retool for the jobs of tomorrow. The Clauson Center for Innovation and Skilled Trades is preparing students for a changing job market.
Thanks to your help, we have constructed the Clauson Center to fill the labor gap and provide opportunities to our neighbors. This approximately 11,300-square-foot facility on the Arnold campus includes:
Where we focus — and how we get there — is based on a true partnership with business leaders, trade associations and the community. Please consider supporting students enrolled in the Clauson Center.
The deepest learning happens when students have the resources needed to be successful and have a sense of belonging. AACC’s commitment to students goes beyond the classroom to ensure that students in need of financial assistance can pay for food, medical bills, transportation and other necessary expenses.
For many of our students, a financial crisis can mean the end of their college career. HelpLink supports students in financial need so that they can keep working toward their education while getting back on their feet.
