I received a scholarship, now what?

High School Play Picture

Congratulations on being awarded a scholarship from the Henry County Community Foundation.  Being selected is a huge accomplishment and we are happy to play a part in helping you further your education beyond high school.

High School Seniors

Most all of you have received notification of your award through your high school honor day program.  The presenter handed you a certificate as well as instructions to obtaining your scholarship monies.

  1. A thank you must be written to the donor and submitted to the Henry County Community Foundation for release of your scholarship. Someone has given money to make your scholarship possible. Please be genuine and specific with your thank you.
  2. Once we receive your thank you note, we will release the payment and this will be sent directly to the college you indicated on your application. If you have made a different selection, you need to inform us of this change. Contact the Program Director at 765-529-2235 or by email at katina@henrycountycf.org.
    POLICY CHANGE: HCCF will only send one scholarship check to your school starting in the 2017-2018 school year and the school will be told to split the check between semesters. If you change schools at the end of your first semester, it is your responsibility to request that your remaining scholarship money be transferred to a different college. If you leave school, please notify HCCF immediately.
  3. At the end of fall semester, students with renewable scholarships will be asked to submit their transcript in order to be considered for a renewal.
  4. After the second semester, submit a copy of your transcript. Some scholarships are renewable and the committee will make that decision based only on the copy of your transcript.  Even if your scholarship is not renewable, we need a final copy of your transcript to close your file.
  5. Visit the Foundation website for scholarships available to college students. Some of these scholarships will be due in March while others are due in June.
