How to Apply for Scholarships

The Foundation offers scholarships for students according to varying criteria chosen by the donors who establish these funds.  Some awards are one-time, while many are renewable for an additional three years.  You can apply for most scholarships by completing the Foundation's one-stop scholarship application, while other scholarships utilize their own application process outside of the Foundation.


You can apply for most of the Foundation's scholarship opportunities by completing a one-stop application. After completing the application and providing supplemental materials, you will receive a list of scholarship opportunities for which you are eligible.

These scholarships are administered by independent committees outside of the Foundation and will not be identified through the one-stop scholarship application. You must contact each scholarship committee or guidance counselor individually to inquire as to their specific application process and deadlines.
