Community Foundation of Carroll County Scholarships & Applications

The 2023 Scholarship Season is closed.
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
4-H Portal Application
Other Scholarships using individual applications

The Universal Portal application is an easy way for students to APPLY ONCE and see all the scholarship opportunities they are eligible for (application opens in January and closes mid-April each year). 4-H Club Participants – Use the 4-H/FFA Scholarship Portal application for scholarship opportunities just for you (opens in January and closes July 1 each year). You only apply once and complete the applications for the opportunities you want to pursue. 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.

Megan Branscome Memorial Fund

Our goal is to provide 2 Carroll County Public School students from Manchester Valley High School with a $1,000 scholarship each. These 2 students would be enrolling in Carroll Community College. Our daughter passed away suddenly on September 10, 2022, and we want to dedicate the scholarships in her name. Megan attended MVHS. After graduating she attended Carroll Community College. Her family would like to help 2 students achieve their educational goals. We will be using some proceeds from our craft business “Megan’s Wings” to subsidize the scholarship fund. We already have an ongoing commitment of $1,500. Our goal is to provide the scholarships this coming academic school year.
