The Community Foundation awards annual scholarships for post high school education. Our scholarships are based on field of study, merit, financial need, and community involvement. Some scholarships have specific eligibility requirements, and you should read the descriptions carefully to see if you may apply.
Students eligible for renewals will be contacted via e-mail in January. If your scholarship is renewable, you must reapply each year. Renewals are competitive and at the committee's discretion.
Decisions approved by the Community Foundation Board of Directors are rendered in May and are final. Awards are paid to post-secondary accredited educational institutions, not to individuals or bookstores.
Please note: Our scholarship application deadline was March 2, 2017 and is now closed.
Our review committees are eagerly digging into all of the scholarship applications we received. Over 250 students applied! Students who are awarded a scholarship will receive a letter from us at the end of May. If you do not receive notification it means you were not awarded a scholarship this round, but we highly encourage you to apply for the next application period in December 2017.
Please check back in December for the new application.
Before applying, please review our online tutorial Five Top Tips to help you get through the application process or view the Scholarship FAQ if you have any questions while completing your application.
