All Opportunities

Welcome to the Hamilton Community Foundation scholarship homepage.

Below you will find a listing of scholarships available to students with brief information about the scholarship qualifications. To apply for scholarships you must first create an account by clicking Sign Up in the upper right hand corner. You will need an email address and password. It is recommended that you create your account using an email address that you will monitor frequently and will have access to after high school graduation. (Do not use your high school email address.) You will then need to complete (and submit) a General Application which will automatically match you to those scholarship opportunities for which you meet the minimum qualification criteria.

Deadline to submit your application is March 15th except for the B.K. and Norma Heuermann Scholarship which has a deadline of February 15th. It is recommended that you submit your application prior to the deadline. Foundation staff will not be available for assistance after 5:00 p.m. on the deadline date.

Scholarship values listed may change slightly without notice due to investment performance of the fund during the year. Scholarships may also be added or deleted prior to recipient selection date.
