Postsecondary Scholarships

Applying for a Scholarship as a College Student

Each year the Blackford County Community Foundation awards scholarships to local students who

  • have completed at a year of a college or technical school program, ¬†or
  • are entering a college or technical school program at least one year after completing high school.

Post-secondary scholarship applications were due June 4, 2022 and the application is now closed.


To be eligible for a scholarship, an applicant must:

  • Be a legal resident of Blackford County, IN;
  • Have a cumulative GPA of 2.50 or greater through Spring Term 2022;
  • Not be a recipient of a Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship;
  • Understand that awards are for tuition and mandatory fees, not room and board; and
  • Understand that all required information must be provided.

Each scholarship is granted for a one-year period. An annual application for renewal is required; however, submission of an application does not guarantee receipt of an award.
