Scholarships for Everyone!

Thanks to our donors, each year the OCCF distributes about 70 scholarships worth over $127,000 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 2024

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

71 scholarships were awarded to 45 students from OVHS, WRV, Cloverdale, and other schools. 

Over $137,000 worth of scholarship awarded.

The scholarship application period is now closed. Check back in late 2024
for the 2024-25 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

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 2024 for the 2024-25 scholarship application for postsecondary students. 


Our staff are available to provide direct assistance.
