Many scholarship opportunities are available for students through the Polk State College Foundation, Inc. The Foundation actively seeks private funding for endowed scholarships. These endowed scholarships often include special criteria established by the donor. The Polk State College Foundation Scholarship Committee selects applicants based on these stated criteria.
Foundation Scholarship Application
Polk State College Foundation Scholarship Applications are accepted from February 1 – February 28, with a possibility of a second application period being opened, dependent on the remaining number of scholarships still available. Applications are submitted online. Students interested in applying for an endowed scholarship may do so via the link below. Information about available Foundation scholarships is posted to the scholarship application site.
Applications will be reviewed and rated by an independent committee. Students will be notified of offered scholarship awards via their Polk State College student email. Students can also refer to the scholarship application site for offered award notices. Students must complete the Post-Acceptance process to activate their scholarship by the date indicated in their award offer letter; otherwise, the scholarship offer will be forfeited.
Foundation scholarships will be available for use beginning in the Fall term of the current year, and subsequent terms until the scholarship is fully expended, expires or terminates pursuant to donor requirements.
Schools that wish to award scholarship recipients with certificates must contact the Polk State College Foundation 60 days prior to their ceremony to ensure that the certificates are available. Presenters for scholarships will be provided, if available.
