The Union County Community Foundation (UCCF) will begin accepting scholarship applications for higher education from area high school seniors online at its website, uccfar.org, on Saturday, Feb. 20. The last day to submit an application for a scholarship is Wednesday, March 31.
Students should visit uccfar.org and click on “scholarships,” then follow the directions listed to apply for a scholarship.
UCCF has under its umbrella scholarships that are available to Union County, Arkansas students. The majority of scholarships are limited to a specific school for a specific purpose.
Applicants need to carefully read over the criteria for each scholarship. Reading over the scholarship criteria will save students from spending time applying for scholarships that they aren’t eligible to receive. UCCF encourages all applicants to take the time to carefully read the scholarship criteria.
In addition to scholarships for local high school seniors, UCCF has scholarships for post college graduate students. The UCCF website has information on when and how to apply for post college graduate scholarships as well. Post college graduate scholarships will open on March 31.
Be sure to read the scholarship information, as some applications are due earlier than others.
The Union County Community Foundation is a nonprofit organization that donors use to establish scholarship and other philanthropic funds to benefit local students and the community-at-large.
