The North Central Michigan Community Foundation (NCMCF) is accepting applications for its 2021 competitive scholarship program. Current and former graduates of high schools in Crawford, Ogemaw and Oscoda Counties are invited to apply.
Many of the scholarship opportunities available through NCMCF depend upon the high school from which a student is graduating, the college they plan to attend, or their planned field of study. Additionally, some scholarships are for students who have already graduated from high school, and also for those planning to attend a certificate program or trade school. To be eligible, students must complete the application by the March 1, 2021, deadline.
All scholarships must be applied for directly through the Community Foundation’s online platform. Students applying for awards will complete one online application and will be considered for any scholarship for which they are eligible.
Two scholarships, the Lawrence A. Bellor Memorial Scholarship and the Building Trades Scholarship, will be awarded for the first time this year. Both are part of the West Branch-Rose City Educational Support Partnership which holds its funds with NCMCF.
Students from the NCMCF service area should visit ncmcf.org and look for a green piggy bank image to apply for scholarships from their region.
Scholarships awarded during the 2021 competitive scholarship program are for the 2021-22 academic year and are paid directly to the educational institution the student will be attending.
