Applying for a Scholarship

Starting in January, students can begin applying for scholarships for the 2019-2020 Academic Year through Central Kentucky Community Foundation’s Scholarship Central. The application deadline for the scholarships is March 1.  You may register anytime on Scholarship Central.

All scholarship applications in Scholarship Central require the following documentation:

  • Official transcript – provided by academic counselor
  • ACT and/or SAT scores – provided by academic counselor
  • Copy of your full Student Aid Report (SAR) when you complete the FAFSA ( – uploaded by applicant
  • Copy of acceptance letter to college/university – uploaded by applicant
  • Some scholarships require additional documentation, which is listed below. Scholarship applicants must meet specific criteria for each scholarship. Award amounts and the number of awards are estimates at this time.

Scholarships for graduating high school seniors will be announced at the high school awards ceremony. Current college students will be notified by mail.

Most scholarships are for one academic year, but we do offer four-year and renewable scholarships as well.

“The online, one-stop application CKCF has through Scholarship Central makes it easier for today’s student. This helps more students apply for the scholarships.”
