April 01, 2021

New scholarship applications for the academic year 2021-2022 are available beginning January 6, 2021.  The online scholarship applications can only be found on the HCEF website under the "Students" tab. The online scholarship application system offers a matching criteria search in which students may apply to multiple scholarships they may be eligible for.  The scholarships are primarily financial-need based, however, merit-based, academic promise and other non-economic criteria may be considered.  Applicants who complete the HCEF scholarship application will also be considered for the Spirit Hiland Scholarship and Spirit West Holmes Scholarship which are not available to apply for directly.  Scholarship applications are only accepted once per academic year.  Please be sure to apply during the application period if you intend to enroll in an accredited higher education institution for either fall or spring semester. 

Graduating high school seniors, adult students currently or previously enrolled in college, graduate school students, home-schooled students, or other individuals pursuing further education who (1) reside in Holmes County, and/or (2) have graduated from a Holmes County high school are eligible to apply.  The application deadline is Thursday, April 1, 2021, and completed applications must be submitted with all required attachments by 5 p.m. E.S.T. on that day.  

College students currently receiving Education Foundation scholarships will be sent an email with a renewal scholarship application link in December. Check you spam or junk folder if you do not receive it. Those renewal students should only apply via the email link and not apply as a new student. Renewal deadline is Friday, March 26, 2021 at midnight E.S.T.
