Most scholarship funds offer varying award amounts, most of which range from $500 to $2,500 depending on the size of the particular fund, the number of qualified applicants, the renewability of the scholarship, and the directions given by the donor(s) of the funds. However, our application process is competitive and not all applicants will receive a scholarship award.
CFNIL has a variety of scholarships. Some are available based on academic achievement and financial need, but many are available based on what high school you attended, your future area of study, or extracurricular activities. We encourage you to dive into our list of scholarships to see what scholarships you are eligible for.
CFNIL appoints volunteers working in committees to review the scholarship applications. All applications are reviewed anonymously. The committees make recommendations for scholarship awards based on the purpose and specific criteria of each scholarship as established by its donor(s).
Scholarship applications (including attachments and any hard copy materials) must be received by 5:00 p.m. CST on February 1. Incomplete or late applications will not be accepted. There are a small number of scholarships with other deadlines, indicated on the individual scholarship pages.
