Over $800,000 in financial assistance was awarded to nearly 700 recipients for the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation’s 2010-2011 Scholarship season. That’s right, over $800,000, and now is your chance to benefit from the funds available for the 2011-2012 Scholarship season.
On March 1, 2011, scholarship applications became available online at www.crcfonline.org. Guidance counselors at all Chautauqua County schools are also in the process of being updated on the guidelines involved with the application process.
Community Foundation Executive Director Randy Sweeney said, “By visiting the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation’s website, www.crcfonline.org, applicants are given instant access to the documents needed to complete their scholarship forms.”
The process is simple, and only takes one scholarship application form. It can be completed in the convenience of your own home at a time that is good for you.
To begin the process, visit www.crcfonline.org and look for the “Going to College” heading on the right-hand side of the page. Click on the link, and follow the steps as indicated from there. All applications must be submitted to the Community Foundation by June 1, 2011. Applicants will be given friendly reminders of important dates and deadlines via emails and text-messages.
The Community Foundation is committed to assisting local students achieve their higher education goals, and hopefully following graduation, those student will decide to live, work, and play in the Chautauqua Region.
