Next Scholarship Cycle: October 1, 2018 – February 1, 2019

Scholarship Applications

Our scholarship application cycle opens October 1, 2018 and ends February 1, 2019. Scholarships are awarded annually and can be applied for online by clicking the link below. In the past 15 years, 1,500 students from the Shiawassee County area have received over $1.2 million in scholarships.

If you are a high school or homeschooled senior, current college student, fifth year early college senior, or non-traditional student, the Shiawassee Community Foundation may have a scholarship for you! Please note: early college program applicants will apply during their fifth year of high school (the last year of the early college program).

While many of our scholarships are for a specific type of student, college, trade school, or field of study, you will be considered for those scholarships that best match your individual qualifications by answering questions on our online system. Some questions may seem redundant but are necessary in order to to qualify you for as many scholarships as possible and to honor the wishes of our donors.

All scholarship applications must be completed using our online system before the February 1, 2019 deadline, No faxed, emailed, or mailed applications will be accepted. Scholarship amounts vary each year and are based on several factors. Scholarship recipients and amounts will be announced in April 2019.
