Over $70,000 in student scholarships available for 2019-2020

Tuesday, December 11th, 2018

 

The Greater Salina Community Foundation is now accepting scholarship applications for the 2019-2020 school year.

This year more than $70,000 will be distributed to area students through the foundation’s 31 scholarship funds. Eligible scholarship applicants include graduating high school seniors, current college students and non-traditional students.

Each scholarship has a unique set of criteria established by donors to the foundation. Depending on the scholarship, awards range from $250 to $10,000, and some are renewable for up to four years. Scholarships are not necessarily based on financial need.

All scholarship applications must be submitted through the community foundation’s online scholarship portal by February 15, 2019. Scholarships will be awarded by mid-April. The application portal and individual scholarship guidelines can be found at www.gscf.org/scholarships.

Last year, the foundation awarded almost $60,000 to 44 students in north central Kansas.
