(Columbia, S.C.) — Central Carolina Community Foundation is now accepting scholarship applications for the 2022-2023 school year now through March 5, 2022. More than 200 scholarship opportunities are available — totaling over $500,000. Interested students should visit www.yourfoundation.org/scholarships to view eligibility criteria and complete the online application.
“This year, the Community Foundation has more than $500,000 available in scholarship awards for high school seniors and college students — and we want to award all of it,” says Erin Johnson, vice president, community investment at Central Carolina Community Foundation. “We encourage high school seniors and college students to complete our easy online application to apply for multiple scholarship opportunities at once.”
Once students complete the eligibility section of the application, the application will automatically filter scholarships for which the student is eligible. Students must then select the scholarships for which they want to apply. Only one application is needed to apply to multiple scholarships. The awards range from $250 to the full cost of tuition, room and board, and fees. All awards are made possible through charitable funds established by generous donors who are committed to furthering the education of the next generation.
The application requires a copy of the student’s most recent transcript, a personal statement that should not exceed 600 words, contact information for two individuals that will complete a recommendation on behalf of the student, and the family’s 2021 gross household income. If students are awarded a scholarship, they will be notified in May.
