Graduating High School Seniors: The online application for 2020 scholarships will open on Monday, February 24, 2020.

Renewal Candidates:  If you have a current, renewable scholarship from the Outer Banks Community Foundation, you received two emails and/or a letter from us in early March with instructions on how to apply for renewal. They were sent to the contact information you provided on your Scholarship Response Form from last year. The deadline for the renewal application has now passed. All applicants will receive a letter with the renewal decision in May or June. Please note that scholarship renewals may be dependent on specific scholarship criteria, including full-time enrollment, intended/declared major, and/or GPA.
