The new Greater Jefferson County Foundation scholarship website will be available for Jefferson County high school senior applicant starting tomorrow December 1st. The deadline for application is February 1st at 4:00 pm. Students are asked to create a confidential account and then proceed through the application form filling out the information completely. In addition to the application, a list of scholarships is on the webpage with a brief history and criteria for student eligibility for each scholarship.
The Scholarship Committee for the Foundation has spent the last year discussing the necessity for changing the scholarship application process to an online application. With over 20 applications, the challenge was to design an application that would not only encompass and honor the criteria that was specified by the donors but would also streamline the judging process as well. The Committee chose to begin with the 10 scholarships that are judged by them.
