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!

Select the appropriate region in the left menu options (Ohio, WV or WV and Ohio), then select the scholarship opportunity and you’ll see an overview of criteria and general instructions about how to apply, including a link to an application for some.  The 2022 scholarship cycle will be the first for a new online platform and will include many, but not all, of the scholarships in the CFOV portfolio.  Those not housed in the online platform will still utilize a paper application or other format.  The method of access will be indicated on the individual overview.

The online platform utilizes a universal approach, where applicants will complete a common application and the system will then take those responses and match applicants with opportunities for which they qualify.  Applicants can choose to pursue offered opportunities or not.  We’re very excited to offer this streamlined experience for scholarship seekers and those involved in the application process!

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