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 to each scholarship committee at the address posted for the scholarship.

Scholarship applications are available in PDF format. The NCCF Standard Scholarship Application, used by many (but not all) of these scholarships can be filled out on your computer and saved. We encourage you to use this to make your application easier to complete and read. 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.

The 2018-2019 scholarship season has now closed. Please use the drop-down list below to find information about scholarships available to students in the county where you reside, as well as our statewide scholarships. NCCF will begin accepting applications for the 2019-2020 academic year in February. 

Please note that Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome are the preferred browsers for the online application system.
