MORE THAN $400,000 IN SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE FOR 2014-2015 SCHOOL YEAR
NEW online application system; April 1 deadline
WILMINGTON, Delaware—Delaware students are invited to apply for scholarships available through the Delaware Community Foundation. The deadline to apply is April 1, 2014.
Last year, the DCF awarded more than 400 scholarships totaling more than $400,000 to assist individuals in pursuing higher education. Students can apply for most scholarships by completing a single online application, available at www.delcf.org/apply. (A paper application also is available for download at www.delcf.org/scholarships.)
For details about the variety of scholarships available, including criteria and award amounts, download the Delaware Community Foundation Scholarship Compendium, Scholarships to be Awarded for the 2014-2015 School Year at www.delcf.org/scholarships. Applicants should review the criteria for all of the available awards.
The online application system guides applicants through a series of questions to determine which scholarships they may be eligible for. Students are automatically considered for every scholarship for which they meet the minimum criteria.
There is no cap on the number of scholarships or amount students may receive. Funding from many of the scholarships may be applied to the costs of textbooks and fees, in addition to tuition. Some are one-time awards, and others are renewable.
“Many of our donors who care about education choose to create scholarship funds to help students and their families with rising college costs,” DCF President & CEO Fred Sears said. “Our goal is to connect people who care about education with people who care about their futures.”
