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.

Mission Statement

The Emma Grace Jester Memorial Scholarship is sponsored by “Catherine’s Cause”, a Carroll County Community Foundation Fund. Emma Grace was killed by a drunk driver in 2008 on Kent County roads, at the young age of four years old. Emma has family in Carroll County and her mother, Jennifer Edwards, regularly volunteers with the Foundation. Jennifer is a Kent County resident and a Graduate of Queen Anne County High School. In an effort to keep Emma’s Memory alive, we offer scholarships to those interested in Criminal Justice Education.
