CLAY COUNTY – The Community Foundation is accepting applications for its 2022 College Scholarships.

All scholarship applications are due by the close of business on March 15. Thanks to generous donors, The Community Foundation offers several scholarships each year that benefit students in Northeast Florida who are seeking post-secondary degrees. Available opportunities and links to the online applications are listed below. Please review the qualifications for each before determining whether to apply.

Before you begin your application, we encourage students to complete the Free Application for Federal Aid to determine their expected family income. However, if you are not able to complete the FAFSA, you will still be able to apply. You can find answers to frequently asked questions about the FAFSA at www.studentaid.gov. You can also talk to your high school guidance department and/or your college/university admissions office.

Additionally, we are also encouraging students to review College Scorecard, which can be found at http://collegescorecard.ed.gov. College Scorecard allows students to evaluate the cost of attendance at their preferred institution. It also provides key information about student outcomes post-graduation. Both the FAFSA and College Scorecard are nationally used tools that can aid students in getting a detailed picture of how much their education will cost.

The scholarships that are available are:

BYON M. MORRIS SCHOLARSHIP will provide $4,000 ($1,000 a year for four years) to support tuition, books, fees, room &board, and degree-related expenses for one graduating senior who has attained Scouting’s highest ranks. One Eagle Scout (Boy Scouts) or one Gold Award winner (Girl Scouts), who demonstrates an aptitude and desire to succeed, will receive the scholarship. In selecting the successful candidate, the review committee will consider academic achievements, leadership experience, desire for personal growth and financial need. All applicants must have at least a cumulative 3.0-grade point average (weighted) and plan to attend an accredited post-secondary institution on a full-time basis. Housed at The Community Foundation for Northeast Florida, the Byon M. Morris Scholarship application is available at https://jaxcf.formstack.com/forms/2022scholarships.

SAM AND LYDIA PAYNE SCHOLARSHIP will provide financial assistance for two students graduating from a North Florida public or private school who demonstrate an aptitude and desire to succeed. The scholarship will support tuition and books, up to $18,000 ($4,500 a year for four years) provided the recipient continues to meet the eligibility requirements. All applicants must have a cumulative 2.2-3.5 (weighted) grade point average and plan to take a full-time course load in pursuit of a bachelor’s degree. In selecting the successful candidate, the review committee will consider a desire for personal growth and financial need.
