2014 APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS
The Foundation uses a consolidated application for the majority of its scholarships. Each scholarship has specific eligibility restrictions (such as county of residence, high school attended, major, etc.). Potential applicants must review the descriptions of each scholarship to determine ones for which they are eligible before completing the application form. To be considered for a specific scholarship, you will need to check the scholarship on the application (you may check more than one scholarship - there is no limit to the number of scholarships for which you may apply as long as you meet the stated eligibility criteria).
For questions about this application, contact the Foundation at 304-428-4438 or toll free 1-866-428-4438 or send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The application deadline is March 5, 2014. All applications must be submitted by this date.
In addition to completing this online application, you must provide the following materials to the Foundation:
- High school and/or post-secondary transcripts (the transcript does not need to be an official copy but must be in the same format as an official transcript; if you are a current college student, you must submit both high school and college transcripts). The high school transcript should include grades from the first nine week grading period of the 2012-2013 school year.
- A copy of the page of your or your parents' most recent tax return that indicates adjusted gross income; A copy of schedule C, E, or F if your family files one.
- Student Aid Report, showing estimated family contribution, from FAFSA.
Within the application form, you will have an opportunity to upload these documents, if you have them available in an electronic format. However, you are not required to upload these documents; you may mail these documents to the Foundation at:
