SCCF manages scholarship funds from a variety of different donors and organizations. These scholarships are awarded based on unique selection criteria that honor the donor's intentions. Unless explicitly stated, scholarships are for residents of Steuben County. Scholarships are available for both traditional students (graduating high school seniors) and non-traditional students (current college students and those who are returning to advanced education after a period of time).
The majority of SCCF scholarships are open for applications from November 1 – January 31 each year. Students submit an online application through our scholarship portal. Some scholarships have GPA requirements, additional essay questions, or support students attending a specific college. All scholarship applications are reviewed by a committee of volunteers. Award decisions are announced in late spring. If you plan to attend a for-profit college, please read through the information at the bottom of this page.
