The Outer Banks Community Foundation is now accepting scholarship applications online. The application deadline is 11:59 pm, Sunday, March 25, 2018.
When students click on our online launch site, they will begin the process by creating a user name and password (be sure to save!) and completing a short questionnaire, which quickly and easily directs them to the scholarships for which they’re eligible.
From there, students complete one common application, upload one transcript, submit any required essays, and apply for all Community Foundation scholarships for which they are eligible, all in one place. Teachers and community members can provide confidential recommendations online, without having to make multiple copies for multiple applications.
Though many of the Community Foundation’s scholarships are merit-based, the majority of awards consider financial need. For the need-based awards, students are required to complete a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and upload the resulting Student Aid Report into their application.
Students are encouraged to start now. Again, our application closes on Sunday, March 25 at 11:59pm and we do not provide any extensions. All scholarship winners will be announced at their school’s Senior Awards Night in May or June.
