How to apply

Please read all scholarship criteria carefully to determine if you are eligible. Applications must be received at the locations listed by the dates posted. These are not postmark deadlines. If you are applying for more than one NCCF scholarship, you must submit a separate application for each scholarship.

Scholarship applications are available on the NCCF Online Application System. The NCCF Standard Scholarship Application, used by many (but not all) of these scholarships can be completed online. Please be certain to carefully review the instructions. Also, be certain to complete and submit the separate NCCF Financial Need Information Form and FAFSA Student Aid Report if required.

Scholarship selection committees are not obligated to consider applications that are incomplete, do not meet the stated eligibility requirements, received after the posted due date or are mailed to an incorrect address.

Information about scholarships available for the 2020-2021 academic year can be found by using the drop-down list below to find scholarships available to students in the county where you reside, as well as our statewide scholarships. The 2020-2021 application cycle has now closed.

NCCF will begin accepting applications for the 2021-2022 academic year in early February.

Additional scholarships may come available and will be added to the listing as soon as possible.
