Community Foundation accepting scholarship applications. 


LUDINGTON — The Community Foundation for Mason County’s Foundation Scholarship Program is now accepting applications for 2017. The Community Foundation for Mason County awards over $50,000 in scholarships to both graduating high school seniors and current college students in new and renewed scholarships each year.

The online application deadline is March 1, 2017.

Applications are submitted electronically through the Community Foundation website, The application process has been streamlined into three easy steps for students and families. Scholarship applications are managed through a “single general application” method. Each application is reviewed and matched with the best-fitting scholarship sources.
According to a press release, the Community Foundation does not make awards solely on the basis of need. Academic achievement, community involvement, extra-curricular activities, and financial need are all taken into consideration. Many scholarships were created by donors for specific colleges or fields of study. Scholarships will be announced at school awards assemblies in spring 2017.
“We are excited that we’re able to offer more Mason County students access to higher education,” said Jeanne Oakes, CMFC executive director. “This is an important investment in our community and we hope that many of these young adults return to Mason County to live, work, and give back to the community that invested in them.”

All Community Foundation scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis.
