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 directly to the college/university you indicated on your application.  HCCF will send one scholarship check for the full amount to be split evenly between the fall and spring semesters.  If you have made a different selection from the college/university listed on your application, you need to inform us of this change as soon as possible.  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.  Contact the Education Manager at 765-529-2235 or by email at hilary@henrycountycf.org.
  3. For renewable scholarships, you must submit a copy of your spring transcript in order to be considered for the renewal.  Even if your scholarship is not renewable, we need a final copy of your spring transcript in order to close your file.
  4. 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.
