Harrison County Community Foundation (HCCF) is thrilled to announce the opening of the Universal Scholarship Application, offering graduating high school students residing in Harrison County the opportunity to apply for over 100 scholarships simultaneously. When introduced several years ago, the application aimed to streamline the scholarship application process and provide a fair and efficient way for students to be considered for scholarships.

Applications for the Universal Scholarship Application are now open and will be accepted until Saturday, January 20, 2024, at 4 pm EST. It is important to note that no extensions will be granted, so interested students are encouraged to apply within the specified time frame. To apply and learn more about the Universal Scholarship Application, students can visit hccfindiana.org/scholarships. Through a blind selection process, students will be assessed based on the information provided in their application and considered for individual scholarships for which they meet the criteria for.

HCCF is introducing a temporary change to the high school scholarship process for the Class of 2024. Only students who wish to be considered for financial need-based scholarships will be required to submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This change is in response to federal-level modifications to the FAFSA application and will only affect the Class of 2024. If a student opts to include FAFSA information, it must be added to the Universal Scholarship Application before submitting. No edits can be made to the application after final submission.

Students can apply at hccfindiana.org/scholarships. Those who have any questions regarding the Universal Scholarship Application are encouraged to contact Heather Stafford, HCCF Director of Programs, at heathers@hccfindiana.org or (812) 738-6668.
