Fremont Area Community Foundation’s scholarship application for high school seniors and medical students is now open. The online application opened on October 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. The online application is opening earlier this year to coincide with Michigan College Month, which takes place in October. The statewide campaign focuses on supporting seniors as they complete important steps in the college-going process like applying to schools and for financial aid.

“Opening our scholarship application in October will be a great fit with Michigan College Month,” said Robin Cowles, FACF scholarship and technology manager, noting that the change was made based on feedback from local educators. “Now, while students are already working on completing college applications and filing their FAFSA, they can also start on their Community Foundation scholarship application.”

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

The Community Foundation also offers scholarships to local adult students who have been out of high school for at least two years and/or have a gap in their post-secondary education. The scholarship application for adult students is open year-round.

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