**CHECK BACK OFTEN AS SCHOLARSHIPS ARE POSTED AS THEY ARE RECEIVED**
Mt Pleasant Area Community Foundation is now accepting scholarship applications.
The Mt. Pleasant Area Community Foundation manages more than 70 permanently endowed scholarship funds which provide opportunities for a growing number of young people (and some not so young) in our community. Scholarships have been established by local individuals, businesses, and organizations wanting to help students achieve their educational goals. Some funds award multiple scholarships, but not all funds award scholarships every year.
Applications open on January 1, 2021.
ONLINE SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION SYSTEM:
All scholarship applications must be completed using our online system, and must be submitted no later than Wednesday, March 3, 2021 at 4:00 pm. Students will not need to make multiple copies of application materials, and school administrators will be able to submit transcripts electronically. However, the online application system will require students to answer more questions in order to determine their eligibility for each scholarship offered. We highly recommend every applicant review the Frequently Asked Questions and Scholarships by School before proceeding to the Scholarship Application System.
