The Paulsboro Refining Company is offering 2 Full Tuition Scholarships to SCC for their Process Operator Technology Program. The program is designed to educate/train individuals for a career in the petrochemical, chemical, pharmaceutical and food industries. Completion of this 62-credit Associate’s degree will provide the foundation required for an Operator position in the Refinery. These are very good opportunities for individuals who are strong in math and science but do not necessarily wish to pursue a four-year degree. The pay is very good and the benefits are quite strong. See guidance for complete details.
The Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF) program at SCC is a great opportunity for eligible students to receive not only assistance with funding their education but services to assist them with being successful at SCC such as tutoring, counseling and academic advising.

If you have questions about the EOF program, please do not hesitate to contact Kelly McShay at 856-351-2919 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
