ECCF Scholarships

Through its scholarship funds, the Elmore County Community Foundation assists area students attain their academic goals by offsetting their postsecondary educational expenses.  Applications are available December 1 with a deadline of March 1 (except Wayne Hawkins Memorial Scholarship deadline is March 15). The Red Tail Scholarship Foundation application will open August 1 and close October 1.

Qualifying criteria vary broadly by program, with the bulk of scholarship funds targeting graduating seniors.  In an effort to make the process as efficient as possible, one application form can be completed to apply for multiple programs.

Claim Your Scholarship Award

When you start school in the fall, please have the business office of the college or university contact us, providing written proof of your full-time enrollment (e.g., official schedule or letter verifying enrollment status). They can send this letter by whatever means is most convenient.

Once we receive official confirmation of enrollment status, we will issue a check to the institution to be applied toward your expenses. Please keep in mind that the Foundation is unable to issue any scholarship awards without written proof of enrollment.
