Fremont Area Community Foundation (FACF) is currently accepting scholarship applications from high school seniors. The online application opened on January 1 and will close on March 1.

Each year the Community Foundation awards hundreds of scholarships to college-bound students and residents pursuing career training. Last year, 422 local students received scholarships totaling more than $630,000.

High school students interested in applying for an FACF scholarship must live in or attend a high school in Newaygo County Regional Educational Service Agency’s service area. By completing the Community Foundation’s general scholarship application, students will be considered for more than 90 scholarships.

Scholarships for adult students are available year-round. Adult students are defined as residents of Newaygo County or a Newaygo County-based school district who have been out of high school for at least two years and/or have a gap in their post-secondary education.

All scholarship applications must be submitted online. For more information or to apply, visit
