Starting in January, students can begin applying for scholarships for the 2017-2018 Academic Year through Stark Community Foundation’s Application Portal. The application deadline for the majority of the Foundation’s scholarships is April 1. Please do not complete the general application until January 1, unless you are applying for a handful of major-specific scholarships that fall outside of our traditional scholarship season.

Stark Community Foundation is one of the area’s major sources of college scholarship support. Offering more than 80 diverse scholarships, these opportunities are made possible by generous and caring individuals, families and businesses to benefit students from particular geographic areas or schools, attending certain universities or entering certain fields of study. Please read each scholarship description carefully for requirements and deadline.

NOTE: All scholarship applications require you to submit a copy of your Student Aid Report (SAR) from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This process can take up to 2-3 weeks from the time you submit your FAFSA online, so please plan accordingly. In addition, applications require at least 2 to 4 letters of recommendation. We recommend you personally ask these individuals in advance if they are willing to submit a letter of recommendation on your behalf. They will be contacted via email and sent an automatic recommendation request through Stark Community Foundation’s Application Portal.

For more information, please email scholarships@starkcf.org or call 330-454-3426.

To apply, please sign in or sign up and complete an application. For detailed instructions on applying, please review our Application Guide.
