With just one online application, eligible high school students can apply for more than 80 different scholarships offered by the DeKalb County Community Foundation. Application deadline is April 1, 2023.
“Thanks to many generous donors, a variety of scholarships are available for students. Many are specific to a particular high school or have an educational focus. High school seniors are encouraged to start by exploring the Community Foundation’s Universal Application or speaking with their guidance counselor,” said Becky Zantout, Grants and Scholarships Manager.
While most scholarships fall under the universal application, some require an individual one. These additional scholarships include awards to high school students and students beyond high school seeking undergraduate and graduate degrees. Interested candidates can review full eligibility requirements and apply online. The following list provides a brief description of these additional scholarships.
- The Donald and Patricia Pritchard Scholarship benefits a student who graduated from a high school in DeKalb County and attends the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in the College of ACES (Agriculture, Consumer, and Economic Sciences).
- The Dr. & Mrs. Harold P. Wells Scholarship supports current and retired DeKalb Fire Department employees and their dependent family members for educational expenses, including college tuition, fire courses, educational short courses, conferences, and summer camps.
- The Virginia Larsen Nursing Scholarship supports high school seniors and students already enrolled in an accredited nursing program at any level. Applicants must be graduates of a high school in DeKalb County.
