Graduating High School Seniors: The online application for 2019 scholarships is now open. Click here to start your application, or click here for more information. All of our online applications are due by 11:59 pm on Sunday, March 31. All scholarship winners will be announced at their high school award ceremonies in May and June, if applicable, or via US Mail or email.

Renewal Candidates:
  If you have a current, renewable scholarship from the Outer Banks Community Foundation, you will receive two emails and/or a letter from us in early March 2019 with instructions on how to apply for renewal. They will be sent to the contact information you provided on your Scholarship Response Form from last year. If your contact information (e.g., cell phone number, email address, mailing address) has changed since the summer, please notify us ASAP so that you don’t miss your renewal invitation. The deadline for the renewal application is Sunday, March 31. Do not complete a new application; instead, follow the link we provide to your (shorter and easier) renewal application. Please note that scholarship renewals may be dependent on specific scholarship criteria, including full-time enrollment, intended/declared major, and/or GPA.
