52 scholarships available only to Kent or Sussex County students; Deadline March 15, 2018

High school students throughout Delaware are invited to apply for scholarships available through the Delaware Community Foundation. The deadline to apply is March 15, 2018.

While many scholarships are open to students throughout Delaware, 52 scholarships totaling $83,000 will be awarded exclusively to Kent or Sussex County students. (Kent and Sussex students also should review all scholarships for statewide opportunities.)

Last year, the DCF awarded more than 300 scholarships totaling more than $340,000 to assist individuals in pursuing higher education. Students can apply for most scholarships by completing a single online application, available on the DCF’s new platform at delcf.academicworks.com. On the website, students can review all criteria and award amounts before beginning the application process. Also, the DCF Scholarship Compendium is available at delcf.org/scholarships

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 the 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 Stuart Comstock-Gay said. “Our goal is to empower people who care about education with people who are engaged about their futures.”
