The Southwest Florida Community Foundation’s scholarship application process for the 2019-2020 school year will begin nearly a month earlier than in the past.
Beginning Dec. 17, students can apply for scholarships at www.floridacommunity.com/scholarships. The scholarship application process will close Feb. 24.
Students may review the scholarships available online, as well as a tutorial about how to create and submit the online application. Students may apply for multiple scholarships and have the ability to upload transcripts, SAT/ACT scores, letters of recommendation and the FAFSA Student Aid Report.
Approximately $500,000 in scholarship money is available through more than 100 scholarships for high-school, undergraduate and graduate students from Charlotte, Collier, Glades, Hendry, and Lee counties. Last year, one in five students who applied received a scholarship from the Foundation.
