Toledo Community Foundation Scholarships


Toledo Community Foundation Scholarship Opportunities 

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.
