The Community Foundation’s online scholarship application makes it easy for students to apply for scholarships. Students only need to complete one application and are automatically matched with each scholarship opportunity for which they qualify.

Applications are open annually from January through March each year.

Information/documents needed when submitting your scholarship application:

  1. A transcript that shows your most recent cumulative GPA on a 4.0 scale (PDF Format)

  2. Personal statement  This essay should help the reviewer learn about your personal history, perspectives, goals, and interests. Be sure to include your education plans and career goals as well. Please review your essay for grammatical and spelling errors before you submit it.  Your personal statement should not exceed 600 words.

  3. The email address of two individuals (NOT family members) who will complete a recommendation form on your behalf.  Please note: a letter of recommendation will not be accepted in lieu of the online recommendation form. Each applicant will be required to enter the email address of their references on the application. Each reference will then be emailed by the Foundation to request they complete a recommendation form. These two recommendations must also be completed no later than March 5.
