Scholarships

Helping local students pursue their academic goals.

Scholarships are the most direct and public expression of financial support that the Community Foundation can give the students of Jefferson County.

The Community Foundation manages nearly 60 scholarship funds that help local students pursue their academic goals following high school.

In 2022, the Community Foundation of Madison & Jefferson County awarded over $175,000 in scholarships to graduating seniors of the county’s public and private high schools. More than 30 different students earned money toward their college costs. Scholarships are available for a variety of applicants. Some are specific to schools, majors, need, or interests. Others have few restrictions. Check out the Available Scholarships Listing to see what you may be eligible for!

Many of the scholarships ask you to supply your test scores which some reviewers rely on heavily for making selections. If you do not have a score yet, please go ahead and apply for the scholarships, knowing that your application will have less information for reviewers. You should supply your PSAT scores if you have those.

Most of the scholarships require you to provide the EFC (Expected Family Contribution) from your FAFSA. However, not all of the scholarships have a need-based requirement. Look at the Available Scholarships Listing to see which scholarships require this information. You can complete your FAFSA by going to the link at the top of this page.

CFMJC scholarships may be used for tuition and related expenses like fees and required equipment at accredited colleges and universities. Room and board are NOT covered, but be sure to check out the specifics in the Available Scholarships Listing.

The online application window for our 2023 scholarships opens on December 1, 2022, and closes at NOON on February 10, 2023.

All student information and recommendations MUST be submitted on the Community Force website before the deadline on February 10, 2023. Please remember to give your references plenty of time to complete and submit letters of recommendation. It is the responsibility of the applicant to make sure all materials are completed and the SUBMIT button is pressed before this time. Your school counselor will have an additional week to submit your transcript. Partial applications will not be considered.
