High School

Application Deadline: Friday, March 1, 2019 at 3:00pm

Scholarship awards will be announced during the Rising Sun High School awards program.

The Ohio County Community Foundation uses an online application process. The link is listed below.

The scholarships are linked to a Common Application. Once you complete your first application (regardless of which one it is), your common application information will be saved and automatically transferred into any other High School applications you complete. This will save you from retyping the same information again.

Once you click on the scholarship link below, you will be asked a series of questions which will allow the online program to perform a search (by your high school and GPA) to show you the scholarship(s) in which you may be eligible to apply. Please read the scholarship criteria carefully. Some scholarships have specific criteria set up by the donor and may request additional information.
