Our 2024 scholarship application is open. It is due Feb. 1, so mark your calendar!   

We’ve made it simple: fill out just one application to be considered for all available scholarships you qualify for. And there’s a wide range. In 2023, we awarded more than 220 local students over $650,000 in scholarships to achieve their education and career dreams. 

Many of our scholarships are need-based, not grade-based. Not only do we have scholarships for high school and homeschool seniors entering higher education next year, but we also have scholarships for returning students, adults and graduate students. Criteria could include the school you’re attending, your personal and career goals, if you currently work, and more. See the full list of scholarships here. 

Please ensure you submit your FAFSA along with your application. The 2024-25 FAFSA will be available by December 31 online. Review our other tips and tricks for applying. 

From February to April, our selection committees thoroughly consider and review each submission in depth. For the 2023-24 timeline, click here.

We love supporting our local students and those aspiring to higher education – it’s part of our mission. If you live, work or go to school in the Northwest Ottawa area, you’re well-positioned to receive a scholarship.   

Fill out your application today.
