Frequently Asked Questions about Scholarships

We've had some questions about eligibility for families that have saved for their child's college education and whether or not they will qualify for scholarships the Community Foundation holds.

We want to let everyone know that the portion of the application that asks for savings and other information, shows us that applicants and their families planned ahead---which in turn is one indicator that the applicant will be sucessful in obtaining her/his higher education goal.

In general when reviewing applications we consider applicants with the lower the number of remaining expenses to be a better candidate for completion of college and obtaining their degrees.
