Please note that you should fill out all three applications (two with Community Force and one with ITST) if you wish to be considered for all available scholarships.

The Fayette Community Foundation has been awarding scholarships for three decades. Each year the process is tweaked to be more efficient for qualified CHS students to successfully apply for funding. The goal of the Community Foundation is for the best applicant to be selected and for the applicant to earn a degree.

The Fayette Community Foundation has two different scholarship applications for 2019. Connersville High School seniors that are Fayette County residents are encouraged to complete both applications. Each application is reviewed by three committee members per the IRS regulations. Committee members for the majority of the scholarships do not live or work in Connersville or Indiana. When completing your application make sure you do not use abbreviations or acronym.

If you have any questions, please call the Foundation office at 765.827.9966.  The office is open Monday through Friday 8:30 – 4 pm.
