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. Two of these scholarships are determined by the WCCF board, and must be applied for through the online application system. The third scholarship is reviewed by an external scholarship committee. Additional details about how to apply for those scholarships can be found below.
APPLICATIONS THROUGH THE ONLINE APPLICATION SYSTEM ARE DUE BY 5:00PM ON THE DAY OF THE DEADLINE, NO EXCEPTIONS.
We HIGHLY suggest you submit your application before the deadline in case of any technical difficulties.
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.
