PLEASE BE INFORMED: The WCCF has implemented an online scholarship application system as of January 2022. All applicants wishing to apply for the first time to this system, will need to complete both Step 1 and Step 2 as described below in order to access the available applications.

The Wichita County Community Foundation administers three scholarships for students who desire to further their education once graduated from High School. Many statistics link a college degree with higher-paying jobs and a better chance at financial success in life. These scholarships are determined by the WCCF board and must be applied for through the online application system. Additional details about how to apply for those scholarships can be found below.


We HIGHLY suggest you submit your application before the deadline in case of any technical difficulties, and to allow third-parties ample time to submit their letters of recommendation prior to the deadline. 

Step 1

If you have not previously applied to the Wichita County Community Foundation through this system, please watch the video below outlining how to access the system, set up a new account, and proceed through the application process. If you have previously applied to us through this system, please feel free to bypass the video and move on to Step 2 below.

Step 2

Click the button below to log in or create a new account and begin the application process.

***If you do not receive an email notifying you of our receipt of your submission, your application has not gone through. Please re-enter the system and review your application for any missing required information, and submit. If the problem persists or you have additional questions about the application process or system, please don't hesitate to contact the office at 620-271-9484.

NOTE: Once you are directed to the scholarship system login page, you may wish to save the address in your internet favorites list in order to easily access your account and view your current and previous applications as well as any correspondence from the Foundation regarding your application in the future. Otherwise, you will need to revisit this page and click the apply button in order to reach the website.
