Scholarships are financial awards to student applicants on the basis of academic achievement or special talents. Unlike some other forms of financial aid, scholarships do not have to be repaid. The Polk State College Foundation encourages all students to apply for these prestigious, though limited, awards.
The information you provide in this application will be reviewed by the Polk State College Foundation Scholarship Committee for many different measurements of scholarship including academic excellence (GPA), program of study, leadership, community service experience, financial need, and written or oral communication. It is very important that the information you provide be as accurate as possible.
Applications are accepted February 1st through March 15th annually.
