START YOUR
SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION


THE PROCESS

All scholarships funds directly managed by the Community Foundation have one, common online application process. All you need to do is submit one application through our online application portal and you will be considered by all scholarship funds.

Here are some dates to keep in mind:

December 1: The application forms go live! You can begin to draft your online application.

March 15: Application deadline! All applications must be submitted before 5 p.m.

March to May: All applications will be reviewed during this time, a determination will be made as to the winners, and all applicants will be notified whether or not they have received a scholarship.

June: If you are selected for a scholarship, you must submit your college choice forms to us at this time so we know where to direct your scholarships.

July: Awards will be sent to schools once college choice forms are received.

Additionally, there are some scholarship funds managed directly by schools. The majority of those have March 15 deadlines and are awarded on a similar timeline. Information regarding which schools have such programs can be found in the Apply section further down on this page.
