Community Foundation of Carroll County Scholarships & Applications

The 2023-2024 Scholarship Season is NOW OPEN.
The Community Foundation of Carroll County supports nearly 75 academic, sports, special circumstances, and 4-H scholarships. Search scholarships by name, or sort by application type. These scholarships fall into three application types (noted in the far right column):
Universal Portal Application

There are additional scholarship opportunities found in the “Other” category. These are scholarships hosted by the Community Foundation, but the application, review and award process is managed entirely by the scholarship holder. These have individual deadlines, criteria and applications. All scholarships are listed below with criteria, donation information, and access to the application.
