Scholarship Application Process
The CFLF Scholarship Committee will review all applications and select final candidates on the basis of eligibility, quality of application, community service and financial need. All applicants will be notified of acceptance or rejection of a CFLF scholarship for the academic school and awarded at the annual Scholarship Ceremony. While all candidates who meet the criteria for eligibility may apply, all eligible candidates may not be selected to receive a scholarship award.
Scholarships are awarded to recipients for one academic year. The scholarship may cover up to 100 percent of the tuition for the current academic year as posted by the financial aid office of the university or college. The scholarship payments are made to the designated school. The funds are to be used for tuition only and may not be used for other costs on the recipient's bill. Extenuating circumstances will need to be reported to the CFLF Education Director, who, in turn will notify the Board of Directors. A decision will be made, if necessary, to address the issue.
Students applying for scholarships must be accepted or enrolled in a bachelor's or associates’ degree program, technical, trade or vocational school at a college, university or other educational institution at the time the application is submitted and /or at the time the scholarship award is presented. Students must be enrolled full-time and making satisfactory progress toward an undergraduate degree or certification. Students must be 26 years of age or younger. Because the scholarship is in part merit based, the student must possess a 2.5 grade point average to be eligible for a scholarship award and must maintain at least a 2.0 cumulative grade point average out of a possible 4.0, having earned a grade of C or higher, during the term in which he/she has received a CFLF Scholarship award.
