Scholarships

The ACCF offers various scholarship opportunities for students who fit into one of the following categories:  
 
Note:  If you are awarded a scholarship during the current calendar year, your next opportunity to apply for a scholarship through the ACCF is the following calendar year.  
 

1.      Traditional students:  These students are high school seniors who are Adams County residents preparing to graduate from an Adams County high school at the conclusion of the school year.  These students plan to attend college in the coming fall semester.  The ACCF offers scholarship opportunities for those pursuing a 4-year bachelors, 2-year associates, or technical/vocational post-high school degree. 

For those wishing to apply for the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship (LECS):   please note that due to recent changes, the LECS will have an earlier due date for those graduating from high school in spring 2017.  The due date for the Lilly Endowment is the first Thursday in October (October 6, 2016) by 4:00 pm. 

Aside from the LECS, all other scholarships managed by the ACCF will have the following due date:  first Thursday in February (February 2, 2017).
 
For those students who choose to submit an application for the LECS (October due date), the ACCF will automatically include the October application in the February review process.  However, if a student wishes to submit an updated or revised application for the February review, this is allowable, but the student must follow all guidelines set forth in the application to include the correct number of copies and due date.
