Scholarships for Everyone!

Thanks to our donors, each year the OCCF distributes nearly 60 scholarships worth over $70,000 to deserving students who call Owen County home. Our scholarships support students who are pursuing degrees from colleges and universities, as well as those obtaining career and technical education at a community college. Continuing education scholarships for adults returning to school are also available. 

Local High School Scholarships

The local community scholarships for graduating seniors are paid from OCCF funds that carry out the specific wishes of donors who want to support and promote educational achievement. 

In 2022

54% of students who applied were awarded at least one scholarship. 

73 scholarships were awarded to students from OVHS, WRV, and other schools. 

$127,871 worth of scholarship awarded in 2022.

The scholarship application period is now closed. Check back in late 2022
for the 2022-23 scholarship application. 

The OCCF Scholarship portal is where you can manage all your account information and update applications. If you need help with applications or have general questions about the portal or process please contact us by calling (812) 829-1725 or email maria@owencountycf.org.

Postsecondary Scholarships

The postsecondary scholarships reward students who are continuing their education after high school or by welcoming students back to college or vocational school after some time away from academics. These scholarships also represent individual donor plans that range from an award for women returning to college to adults working their way through college.
 
Postsecondary scholarship applications are currently not being accepted. Check back in late 2022 for the 2022-23 scholarship application for postsecondary students.

I know that people in my community believe in me, and it reassures me that I can persevere no matter what happens.
