For decades, the Cincinnati Scholarship Foundation (CSF) has administered scholarships that have helped thousands of students from the Greater Cincinnati area to achieve their dream of a college education. The scholarship funds come from community organizations, businesses and individuals who believe that a higher education should be available to everyone, regardless of financial limitations.
Criteria for these scholarships are determined by the donors and can be specific, which is why it is important that you complete the application in its entirety. Most scholarships are "need-based", and help to cover the cost of education after all other federal, state, and campus-based aid have been awarded. To be considered for all CSF scholarships, you must have a proven financial need which can only be determined by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
