Thanks to our generous donors for contributing to more than 90 scholarship funds at the Foundation, we are able to provide Southwest Florida students the opportunity to apply for scholarships. We awarded over $761,000 in financial support to 135 individual scholarships in 2018, to high school seniors, undergraduate students and graduate students; 25 of those scholarships are multi-year scholarships.
Scholarships are available for high school seniors, adults returning to school, GED holders, undergraduate students and graduate students to continue their education at vocational/technical schools, community colleges, state colleges and universities.
PREPARING TO APPLY FOR A SCHOLARSHIP
Applying online for Southwest Florida Community Foundation scholarships is easy! To access an online application, you will need to answer the Prequalifying Questions. Your answers to these questions will filter out the scholarship(s) you are eligible for. After you answer the Prequalifying Questions and select the scholarship(s) that you wish to send your application to, you will be prompted to create a password. Your email address will be your username. If you are a returning applicant, please login to begin your application. The Foundation does not have access to passwords, so it’s very important to save and/or remember your password.

Our scholarship application will open on Monday, December 17, 2018 and will close on Sunday, February 24, 2019 at 11:59 p.m.
