Grants & Scholarships


The Community Foundation holds a variety of scholarship funds and new as of 2021–students only have to complete one application to be considered for multiple scholarship opportunities.

Based on the applicant’s responses to a set of standard questions, CFMV’s system will determine for which scholarships the applicant is eligible. The applicant will be immediately notified of which scholarships they will be considered for, and may be prompted to provide additional information necessary for certain opportunities. This will dramatically cut down the time students spend completing forms and ensure they are being considered for all opportunities for which they are eligible.

*Award and declination notifications will be provided to applicants by the end of June 2022.

Scholarships are available for students meeting a variety of different criteria. All Mahoning Valley students are encouraged to apply to ensure they do not miss out on scholarship awards. Please click each dropdown below for a full list of scholarships included in this process.
