Thanks to our generous donors contributing to more than 90 Scholarship Funds at the Foundation we are able to provide students in Southwest Florida the opportunity to apply for College Scholarships. We awarded over $800,000 in financial support to 150 individual College Scholarships in 2017 to both high school graduates and undergraduate college students, of which 20 are multi-year awards.
Scholarships are available for high school seniors wanting to continue their education at the vocational/technical school level, university or community college, as well as for undergraduate and graduate students continuing their post-secondary education.
PREPARING TO APPLY FOR A SCHOLARSHIP
Applying online for a Southwest Florida Community Foundation scholarship is easy. To access an online application, you will be required to “create a new account” if you are a first time user of our E-Apply tool. Once you have established an account, the system will remember your contact information and will automatically tie it to any other online scholarship applications submitted through our online system. The Foundation does not have access to passwords, so it’s very important to save and/or remember your password.
The Scholarships Application process opens on opens Monday, January 8th, 2018 and closes Sunday, March 4th, 2018 at 11:59 p.m.
