CICF Scholarship

Central Indiana Community Foundation (CICF) is committed to college success for students through the power of scholarships. Our Scholarship Program makes awards that are impactful and often renewable to increase students’ chances of academic and financial success.

Every year, the need for scholarships is greater than the available resources. Tuition continues to rise faster than wages and inflation, federal education aid is stagnant, and aid increasingly comes in the form of loans (that must be repaid) instead of grants. Too many students do not even begin college due to financial reasons, and those who do may be forced to drop out or take on the high burden of educational debt.

Who Can Apply?

  • Category I: Current High School Senior

  • Category II: Current College Student

  • Category III: Not Currently Enrolled in High School or College

The Foundation also holds scholarship funds administered by local schools, education foundations and/or other organizations. Please contact the appropriate organization and/or your guidance counselor for information on how to apply. These scholarships are listed in the Other Scholarship Opportunities section of this Guidebook.
