Applicants can apply for more than one scholarship, but should note that each has different eligibility criteria, and they must review and meet all stated criteria for consideration. Requirements may include attendance at a certain high school in the county, plans to major in a specific course of study or participation in a designated extracurricular activity. There is no charge to apply for a scholarship listed on the Community Foundation’s website All scholarship applications are due between March and April 2021.

“Scholarship season is always a particularly exciting time; a chance to interact with our community’s students who’ve certainly had a nontraditional past twelve months. Because of the challenges that virtual learning and staggered schedules may pose, applicants are urged to pay attention to deadlines and begin working on gathering the required materials sooner rather than later,” says Sarah Burge, Director of Grants and Donor Relations.
