The Straits Area Community Foundation (SACF) is accepting applications for its 2020 competitive scholarship program. Current and former graduates of high schools in Cheboygan County and Mackinaw City are invited to apply.
Many of the scholarship opportunities available through SACF 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, 2020 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.
Among the other SACF scholarships, the Cheboygan Rotary Club Scholarship will be awarded for the first time this year through the Community Foundation’s online platform. This award is for a Cheboygan County graduating senior.
Students from the SACF service area should visit sacf.net and look for a green piggy bank image to apply for scholarships from the Straits Area Community Foundation.
Scholarships awarded during the 2020 competitive scholarship program are for the 2020-21 academic year and are paid directly to the educational institution the student will be attending.
