Delaware students are encouraged to apply for scholarships available through the Delaware Community Foundation; deadline is March 15, 2018.

Students can apply for most scholarships by completing a single online application, available on the DCF’s new platform at On the website, students can review all criteria and award amounts before beginning the application process. Also, the DCF Scholarship Compendium is available at

The online application system guides applicants through a series of questions to determine which scholarships they may be eligible for. Students are automatically considered for every scholarship for which they meet the minimum criteria.

There is no cap on the number of scholarships or the amount students may receive. Funding from many of the scholarships may be applied to the costs of textbooks and fees, in addition to tuition. Some are one-time awards, and others are renewable.
