How to Apply for a Scholarship
The Foundation’s scholarship application is open until March 15th. To be eligible, you must be a resident of Oceana County and a graduate of an Oceana public or private school. Read through the instructions below to start your application!
Adult student applications are welcomed year-round – click here for more information.
Scholarships are paid to accredited institutions and divided equally between the terms of the academic year. The scholarship award is used toward the cost of tuition, fees, room and board, books, or other educational expenses the student may incur. While many scholarships are for specific types of students, colleges, or fields of study, the Foundation’s process is a “general application.” Each individual application is reviewed and matched with the best-fitting scholarship source. If you have questions about eligibility, please contact us.
Our scholarships are awarded once per year. Scholarship recipients will be notified of their award in April and will be recognized at their high school awards ceremonies. Current college students will be notified by mail in May.
