GBCF accepting scholarship applications

 Golden Belt Community Foundation (GBCF) provides local college students with a free scholarship search and application process. The goal is 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, all having an application deadline of Feb. 28. 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 the four-county area are invited to apply online.
