Applying for a Community Foundation scholarship is easier this year.
All applicants will complete an Eligibility Quiz as a starting point. After completing all questions on the Quiz students will have access to multiple scholarships that match their qualifications. Students need to apply for each scholarship individually.
Applying to renew a Community Foundation scholarship?
You still need to complete the Eligibility Quiz. Upon completion, you will be taken to renewal application.
Scholarships are available for students graduating high school, those in college or trade school, and medical school students, even 3 and 4-year-olds have the opportunity to qualify for a year of preschool tuition.
Most scholarship applications are due by February 28, 2019
Some applications require letters of reference, SAT or ACT test scores, and transcripts. Gathering the needed attachments, especially the reference letters may take time. Students won’t want their letter to be the last thing to do on a busy Friday. Lauren Renda, Program Officer at the Community Foundation, suggests talking with teachers about reference letters three weeks before it is due.
