The deadline to submit an application has been extended to 4 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 10.
Visit www.cffrv.org/scholarship-program/ to view the scholarship program guide and application.
There are about 225 scholarship funds within the Community Foundation. The foundation offers one-year and multiyear scholarships.
Since 1948, the foundation has awarded more than $20 million in scholarship awards.
The Community Foundation offers scholarships to students who are planning on attending an accredited institution of higher education in the U.S. on a full-time basis during the 2023-2024 academic year, and who have a permanent address in the foundation's service area.
Only one application form is required from any one student to be considered for all scholarships offered through the Community Foundation Scholarship Program.
Students who submit an application form will be applying to the Community Foundation Scholarship Program as a whole, not for a particular scholarship, and will be considered for all scholarships in which they are eligible.
They encourage applicants to begin the scholarship process early to allow time for submitting all supporting documents.
