Scholarship Central – Online Scholarship Application



One Place. One Application.

Online Scholarship Application

Central Kentucky Community Foundation has been awarding scholarships for 50 years to local students from the generosity of people who want to make educational opportunities available to more people. We are the largest awarder of scholarship funds in the region. Don’t let a current shortfall of money stand in the way of a long term investment in yourself. Our online scholarship portal will allow you to apply for all our scholarship funds with one application!

Scholarship Central allows students to:

  • Learn what scholarships are available
  • Find out which scholarships they are eligible for
  • Complete the entire application online

Here’s how it works…

  1. Scholarship Central will open for applications in January each year.
  2. Once Scholarship Central is open for applications, go to Scholarship Central and set up an account with your email and password.
  3. Select the scholarship in which you are interested and complete your application. You don’t need to necessarily complete the application in one sitting. You can always click on “Save and continue later”. In some cases, you may be required to attach documents that you will get from others.
  4. After your application is complete, your guidance counselor will be notified to attach certain documents, which may include things like your GPA, ACT scores, etc.
  5. After the deadline for applications is passed, the applications will be reviewed and a Recipient will be selected and notified.

The deadline to complete your online application is March 1, at 12:00 midnight (EST).

Once you submit your online application, you will not be able to make changes to your application or upload additional documents. Submission of a scholarship application grants permission for any school to release student academic and/or financial information and for additional contact from CKCF for information from the applicant as necessary to execute the scholarship process. All information will remain confidential.
