Apply For Scholarships

The majority of CCCF scholarship applications are for graduating high school seniors & are accepted between February and May. Please check with your school’s guidance office to see if you’re eligible for any Community Foundation scholarships.

School guidance counselors, financial aid officers, and/or school specific scholarship committees are our principal contacts for these awards. You can find application information specific to each scholarship on that certain charitable fund’s page. However, most applications require that students apply through their school’s guidance counselors or financial aid officers.

Students seeking scholarships awarded by a charitable fund at the Chester County Community Foundation should speak to the guidance counselors or financial aid officers at their respective school. Scholarship award information is generally available at the relevant schools by March of a given year.
