All students, both traditional and nontraditional, are encouraged to apply as there is a wide variety of scholarships available:  academic, vocational, technical, certifications.  

One Application

Complete and submit one application to be considered for all scholarships at the Grand Rapids Area Community Foundation.

  • More information and instructions are found on the actual scholarship application
  • High School Applications require you to attach your transcripts

If you have completed a FAFSA (Free Application For Student Aid), then you will be asked to upload the first page of your FAFSA Student Aid Report (SAR) which you will receive after they have processed your FAFSA application. It may take a few days after you apply to receive the SAR. Keep this in mind in determining when you should complete our application (the deadline is midnight on March 1st).
