Fairfield Foundation Scholarships – due 3/10/2023

The Fairfield County Foundation is currently accepting applications for more than 90 different scholarship funds for local students for the 2023-2024 school year using one online application. The application officially opened December 1, 2022 and the deadline to submit applications is Friday, March 10, 2023.

Applicants are encouraged to check out the scholarships page on our website for more details, criteria, tips and frequently asked questions to assist in filling out the application. The Foundation’s application system filters down which scholarships students are eligible to receive based on the criteria of each scholarship fund.

“We have scholarships for virtually every area of interest for students, and a wide variety of criteria for eligibility,” said Amy Eyman, Executive Director, Fairfield County Foundation. “Whether you are a high school senior getting ready to head to college for the first time, or someone who wants to return to college after being in the workforce, there is a scholarship that fits your need.”

The Foundation staff will conduct a preliminary review for completeness on all applications submitted by Friday, February 17, 2023. Applicants will receive an email with any issues by February 27, 2023, so that any problems can be corrected before the final deadline on Friday, March 10, 2023. This does not increase the chances of receiving a scholarship, but provides an opportunity for mistakes to be corrected before the deadline and decreases the possibility of an application being ineligible.

Generally, scholarships are reserved for residents of Fairfield County or graduates of a high school in Fairfield County; however, there are a few that are available to students outside of the county. Applicants can be graduating high school seniors, current undergraduate, graduate, non-traditional or vocation/technical school students.
