Scholarship Opportunities – West Virginia & Ohio

CFOV has transitioned most scholarships to an online, common application format.  This process supports an easier and more efficient application experience.  Create an account, complete the initial application and then provide any supplemental materials for the opportunities for which you qualify.  Do note, however, that some opportunities will still use a paper application and those instructions are provided within the corresponding listing.

ACCESS THE SCHOLARSHIP PLATFORM BY CLICKING HERE

Some helpful hints:
Applicants must create an account in the platform to start the initial application

The application process opens January 1 and closes February 23 at 5:00 p.m. – the process will not be active until January 1

Students seeking CFOV scholarships for the first time will complete the application titled “2022 CFOV Scholarships – Universal Application”

Students who have previously received a CFOV scholarship and are seeking the next installment or have the ability to apply for additional consideration will complete the application titled “Multi-Year Scholarship Application Form – for established recipients of certain CFOV scholarships”

Remember, not all CFOV scholarships are housed in the platform.  Be sure to download the paper applications or follow noted instructions for those.
