Apply for a Scholarship

How to apply for a scholarship

The Scholarship application process is detailed with various deadlines. Due dates depend upon the scholarship(s) you are seeking. Please read carefully so you can take full advantage of the funds we offer each year. A missed deadline is a missed opportunity.

Our goal is to streamline the application process, and we do that using our Johnson County Community Foundation (Indiana) form. Applicants will fill out the common form one time and then submit additional information specific to each scholarship being pursued. In addition, there are a few scholarships, such as the Lilly Endowment Scholarship, that use unique applications, and we provide a separate link for each one.
