Golden Belt Community Foundation provides local college students with a free scholarship search and application process. The goal is simple, to connect students with donors providing financial assistance for education. Last year the Foundation awarded over $75,000 to students in Barton, Pawnee, Rush, and Stafford counties. GBCF has dozens of scholarship funds, meeting a variety of educational needs that do not always fit a traditional timeframe, so deadlines vary. Some funds are designated for students that are not receiving substantial financial aid, which cannot be determined until after colleges, high schools, or merit-based scholarships have been awarded. The Foundation also has scholarship funds available to students attending vocational schools or colleges with other types of educational delivery methods. The online search tool makes it easy for students to find funding that aligns with their educational goals. Whether a student is in high school, enrolled in college or a returning student, they will be matched with scholarships that fit their educational career. Students throughout Barton, Pawnee, Rush, and Stafford County are invited to apply online. Search and apply for scholarships at www.goldenbeltcf.org/scholarships. Note varying deadlines.
