There will be something new in 22 for students applying for scholarships to the McKean County Community Foundation (MCCF).
A new online application process from Foundant Technologies will be launched on January 15 for the 2022 scholarship award cycle. This online process will simplify the process for students, school counselors and Foundation staff.
Students will create an account on the online portal where they will answer an eligibility questionnaire which will automatically associate them with all the scholarships available to them according to the criteria they have entered. Each student will then complete their file online. Students can easily download reference letters and transcripts into their applications. Applications can be saved and processed at a later date, and students can track the status of each application. The new program will keep applicants on track with their scholarship reporting requirements with automated email reminders and online report forms.
Students are encouraged to explore the wide variety of scholarships available by visiting the Foundation’s website at www.mckeancountyfoundation.org. Under “Information for Students”, they can view detailed information on scholarships for graduates and non-traditional students. When ready to apply, they can click any of the âClick here to applyâ buttons to be directed to the Foundant application portal.
In 2021, the McKean County Community Foundation awarded $ 33,200 in scholarships to 48 high school and non-traditional students. This new online program will allow the Foundation to continue to offer a streamlined, well-organized and efficient scholarship process as the program continues to grow.
