Our Scholarship Programs

The Community Foundation of Mount Vernon & Knox County annually distributes more than $900,000 in college scholarships through various competitive application processes. The Universal Scholarship Application is available each January at https://mvkcfoundation.awardspring.com with a deadline of March 1.

Traditional students, as well as adults returning to college, are encouraged to apply. This single application will determine if you qualify for one or more of the 125+ individual scholarship funds at the Community Foundation. The online application should be filled out as completely and thoroughly as possible. Incomplete or late applications will not be considered.

Before completing the application, students should read the Requirements & Instructions as well as the Applicant Guide.
