Toledo Community Foundation Scholarships

 

Toledo Community Foundation Scholarship Opportunities 
IMPORTANT - GENERAL INFORMATION

Through the generosity of many individuals, families and businesses, scholarships are awarded on an annual basis from philanthropic funds which have been established with Toledo Community Foundation. These awards assist local students in their pursuit of higher education.

Toledo Community Foundation manages more than 200 scholarship funds. Although we offer scholarships from more than 200 individual funds, those listed below represent only the scholarships for which Toledo Community Foundation is the contact for making application.  Other scholarships offered through the Foundation are administered at the school level, so be sure to check with your guidance counselor/college advisor to see if there are any other scholarships available to you through your high school. 

All applications must be made online with the exception of the BCSN Scholar of the Month (which is handled at the school level and submitted by the Guidance Counselors). It is important for applicants to plan ahead, as attachments to the online applications need to be a part of the application at the time of submission. No hard copies will be accepted. Applications, including all required attachments, must be received by midnight of the application deadline date in order to be considered.  Application due dates are provided with each individual scholarship (named below).

To qualify for a scholarship from Toledo Community Foundation, the school you attend must be an accredited nonprofit institution.  


If you are a finalist for a scholarship that has financial need as a consideration and are invited to interview with the Scholarship Advisory Committee, you are asked to complete a Scholarship Interviewee Budget Form for your college of choice. This form will provide your total financial picture and aid the Committee in their decision. Please bring the completed form with you to your interview.

MHSAA-Farm Bureau Insurance Scholar-Athlete Award $1000 Due: 12-6-2019

Application 

2019-20 MHSAA-Farm Bureau Insurance Scholar-Athlete Award

2019-20 marks the 31st year Farm Bureau Insurance has sponsored the MHSAA’s Scholar-Athlete Award. Since the beginning of the sponsorship, Farm Bureau Insurance has awarded $800,000 in Scholar-Athlete awards. This year, 32 $1,000 scholarships will be available to high school seniors who meet the eligibility requirements listed below. 

Eligibility Requirements:

Enrollment - Student must be enrolled and participating in interscholastic athletics at an MHSAA member school.

Senior Status - Student must be a senior graduating during the 2019-20 school year.

Varsity Letter - Student must have prior to senior year won a varsity letter in a sport in which the MHSAA sponsors a post-season tournament.

3.50 GPA - Student must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of at least 3.5 on a 4.0 scale. You may not round up a 3.4x grade point average for the purposes of qualifying.

Application Sections, Scoring & Helpful Hints:

Essay (40%): Be creative in telling the judges why sportsmanship is important to educational athletics. VERY IMPORTANT: the judges will be reading dozens of essays - make yours stand out! Tell the judges a personal story about sportsmanship; don't give them the Webster's definition of sportsmanship.

Extra-Curricular Activities Form (30%): Focus on significant leadership experiences and significant athletic achievements and academic awards won.  Judges are looking for quality of experiences, not quantity of experiences.

Short-Answer Questions (20%): Use this space to tell us more about how you've personally benefited by staying active – both with school sports and with outside school activities.  These are not throw-away questions, consider them mini-essays.

Letters of Recommendation (10%): Approach coaches, teachers, school administrators, youth group leaders or others in your community to have them write recommendation letters so the judges can learn a little bit more about you.

Please contact your Athletic Director for the Access Code to begin the application process.

If you have questions, please contact Paige Winne at paige@mhsaa.com or (517) 332-5046 ext. 140.
