There’s no denying the fact that college costs are rising. But there is good news. The word “scholarship” has become synonymous with Chautauqua Region Community Foundation. The staff is presently accepting scholarship applications from returning college students.
To be eligible for a college scholarship from the Foundation, students must be enrolled in an accredited college or university and must be a graduate of a Chautauqua County high school. It should also be noted that both undergraduate and graduate students are eligible to apply. The application process is very easy. Students can now go online to apply. All the necessary instructions for the process can be found on the CRCF website (www.crcfonline.org). At the Home Page, click on “Scholarships” – the site will guide students through the process. If students do not have access to a home computer, online applications can be completed at a public library or wherever the student can access online capabilities.
