Fairfield County Foundation 2024-2025 Scholarship Application Now Online

The Fairfield County Foundation is currently accepting applications for more than 100 different scholarship funds for local students for the 2024-2025 school year using one online application. The application officially opened December 1, 2023 and the deadline to submit applications is Friday, March 8, 2024.

GO TO THE APPLICATION

Applicants are encouraged to check out the Scholarships page at the Fairfield County Foundation website for more details, criteria, tips and frequently asked questions to assist in filling out the application. The Foundation’s application system filters down which scholarships students are eligible to receive based on the criteria of each scholarship fund.

“Our scholarship program continues to grow, with opportunities for virtually every area of interest for students, and a wide variety of criteria for eligibility,” said Amy Eyman, Chief Executive Officer, Fairfield County Foundation. “Whether you are a high school senior getting ready to head to college for the first time, or someone who wants to return to college after being in the workforce, there is a scholarship that fits your need.”

The Foundation staff will conduct a preliminary review for completeness on all applications submitted by Friday, February 16, 2024. Applicants will receive an email with any issues by March 1, 2024 so that any problems can be corrected before the final deadline on Friday, March 8, 2024. This does not increase the chances of receiving a scholarship but provides an opportunity for mistakes to be corrected before the deadline and decreases the possibility of an application being ineligible.

Generally, scholarships are reserved for residents of Fairfield County or graduates of a high school in Fairfield County; however, there are a few that are available to students outside of the county. Applicants can be graduating high school seniors, current undergraduate, graduate, non-traditional or vocation/technical school students.

The program staff will be conducting FAFSA and scholarship nights throughout the next few months at the local high schools. They will also be conducting a night at the Fairfield County District Library on Thursday, January 18th at 5:00 pm. Send an email to RSVP for this night at the library.
