How to Apply for a Scholarship

The Community Foundation for the Land of Lincoln administers a variety of college scholarships, mostly for graduating seniors in Sangamon County, but some for older students or students throughout Illinois. Each scholarship was established by generous donors and is unique with its own set of criteria for applicants. To review specific information and instructions on how to apply for scholarships to be awarded in 2015, please check our website near the end of the year.

Next year's scholarship application period will be from January 1, 2015 to March 1, 2015. If you have any questions about Community Foundation scholarships, please email
