Scholarships

The Foundation manages more than 70 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 for the benefit of students who are graduating high school seniors, though a few are available for current college students.

CFOV scholarships cover a wide geographic range and seek to support students representing a variety of backgrounds.  Counties served by CFOV include: Hancock, Brooke, Ohio, Marshall, Tyler and Wetzel in West Virginia and Jefferson and Belmont in Ohio.

Scholarships are listed by geography and we invite you to explore what’s available.  Remember, you may qualify for multiple scholarships!

Each scholarship application will include detail pertaining to deadlines and instructions for submission.
