The Community Foundation of Switzerland County, Inc., is pleased to announce that its scholarship application is now available online at www.cfsci.org/scholarships.php.

Applications may be submitted until 3 p.m. on February 23rd, 2017. The award amounts vary and scholarships must be used for tuition and required expenses only. Scholarship recipients will be notified by mid-June.

The criteria and application requirements for each scholarship vary based on the donor’s wishes. Some scholarships are available to graduating seniors of high school, while others are targeted towards non-traditional and current college students. There is one common application that all applicants must complete. Some scholarships will require that additional information be submitted as well.

Through the generosity of its donors, the Community Foundation has been awarding scholarships since 1998. There are 50 different endowed scholarship funds that have been established through the Community Foundation by individuals, families, businesses and organizations. Last year, the Community Foundation awarded approximately 60 scholarships totaling over $70,000 through its scholarship program.
