It’s Scholarship Time!

CFOV offers more than 70 scholarship opportunities

The Community Foundation for the Ohio Valley (CFOV) has launched 2022 scholarship applications.  Applications are available online at cfov.org by clicking the Scholarships tab.

The Community Foundation for the Ohio Valley administers more than 70 scholarship funds.  Last year, CFOV scholarship funds provided over $350,000 in financial support to nearly 200 students pursuing higher education of all types.

Community Foundation scholarships are as unique as the establishing donor.  Scholarships offered through CFOV represent memorials for loved ones, an affinity for a particular major, attendance at a particular school/university, intended career path, financial need and even being a first-generation college student.

New this year, most CFOV scholarships will be part of an online platform.  This new feature will allow applicants to be matched to available opportunities through completion of a universal application.  Scholarships not housed within the online platform will have clear instructions for access or an application available for download.   Additionally, information can be found in guidance offices at area high schools and college financial aid offices.

While each application has specific instructions, the application period for most opportunities closes February 23.  Application review will then take place and recipients will be informed of awards by the end of May.

Students seeking scholarships are encouraged to visit the CFOV website to explore opportunities.  Questions may be directed to CFOV at 304-242-3144 or jess@cfov.org.
