Scholarships

The Foundation manages more than 60 scholarship funds that honor family or friends, memorialize loved ones, or ensure donor values are passed from one generation to the next. Each fund has different eligibility requirements. Many awards are restricted to students graduating from certain high schools; others to students pursuing particular fields of study, or attending a specific university. Most existing scholarships are limited to students who are graduating high school seniors, though a few are available for current college students.

If you live in one of the counties served by CFOV, it is possible you may be eligible for one or more scholarships. Those counties include: Hancock, Brooke, Ohio, Marshall, Tyler and Wetzel in West Virginia; and Jefferson and Belmont in Ohio.  Please review our Scholarship Opportunities to identify scholarships for which you may be eligible. Applications are available online and are due to the CFOV by March 1 (1310 Market Street, Wheeling, WV 26003) unless indicated otherwise.

For general questions about scholarships, please see our FAQs or contact the Foundation, 304-242-3144.
