Online Application Information

We are experiencing delays in the publication of the 2017-2018 Scholarship Application.
Please be patient as we work to make it available, hopefully by the end of the month of January 2017  

The following documents will be required to complete your application:

  • Your transcript up to the first semester of the current academic year
  • Your resume' (to  reflect extracurricular activities, employment and community service)
  • Your 2017-2018 Student Aid Report (SAR) in its entirety
  • Your 2017-2018 Financial Aid Award Notification from the college you plan to attend


We understand that the SAR and the Financial Aid Notification may not be available by the April 30th deadline. You may submit the application without these documents. However, your application will be considered incomplete until they are received.  Your application will be reviewed when all required documents have been received.

About the Awarding Process

No application will be reviewed until it is completed , i.e, the transcript, the Student Aid Report (SAR) and the Financial Aid Notification have been received by the Cincinnati Scholarship Foundation.

Most scholarships are renewable. All of them have specific criteria. Students receiving renewable scholarships need to continue meeting the criteria of the award they are receiving in order to be renewed. Therefore those students must re-apply each year and submit the necessary documentation proving their continued eligibility. Once these students have been renewed (or not), the Foundation will know what is available for distribution to new applicants.

Obtaining the documents needed to complete the application, either new or renewal, can take time. Filing taxes, submitting the FAFSA, waiting for the schools to “package” a student’s financial aid or a busy summer schedule of work and vacation can all delay the process. That is why the awarding of our scholarships takes place from mid-summer to well after the school year begins.

You will be notified only if you are awarded.  

Thank you for your patience and understanding!
