Our Opportunities

Welcome to Central Lakes College Foundation’s Scholarship Application. Applications are closed for Spring 2022 scholarships. Applications for Fall 2022 will open on May 1, 2022.

Browsing “All” Scholarships: To view a list of all scholarship opportunities, you may click “All” under “Opportunities” above. This list shows all scholarships, not scholarships for which you are receiving consideration. Automatch scholarships will appear with “None” listed under the “Action” column – this means an additional application is not required for consideration. The “Deadline” column indicates the deadline to complete the application to receive consideration. This is not the deadline to accept the award.
