Process

  1. To be considered for a CCF middle school scholarship, an online application and supporting documentation must be submitted by the deadline that contains detailed and confidential personal information.
  2. A Committee reviews and evaluates the applications.
  3. The Committee invites select applicants and their families to visit the Foundation for a mandatory interview in the spring.
  4. Approximately one month after all interviews have been held, the committee decides which applicants will be awarded scholarships. 
  5. Parents/Guardians/Applicants are notified by mail of the committee’s decision.

Recipients receive three-year scholarships, with the exception of when a recipient is entering 7th or 8th grade, in which the scholarship is then two years or one year in length, respectively.

Requirements

  1.  Maintain an overall GPA of 3.5 or higher. Report cards must be submitted to CCF annually to record GPA.
NOTE: CCF scholarships are partial scholarships and will not cover all tuition costs.
