Scholarship deadlines approaching

If you want to apply for Community Foundation for Northeast Michigan scholarships, please read the following information carefully before accessing the “AwardSpring” Scholarship Application.

Some CFNEM Scholarship Funds do not use the “AwardSpring” application process. The donors of these funds have established other application procedures, which you can find in the Alternative Application Procedures section below.

For scholarships in Cheboygan, Crawford, Iosco, Ogemaw or Oscoda Counties, or Mackinaw City, please visit our Affiliate Scholarships Application Page. Look for the green piggy bank.

Each scholarship application submitted will be carefully reviewed to make sure students are considered for all scholarships for which they are eligible. There are over 70 different scholarship funds for students and adults who live in or have gone to school in Alcona, Alpena, Montmorency and Presque Isle Counties, thanks to many generous local donors who care about your future.

Now is a great time to gather some important information that you may need to complete the online application process, depending on the particular scholarship(s) for which you are eligible. Several of the scholarships funds have varying application requirements, so you may not be required to submit all items listed below. Most of these items also are required for applications to college so you may have them compiled already.

For specific requirements, contact cfnem.org.

Other information may be needed depending on specific criteria for a particular scholarship fund.

Please read each fund description for eligibility criteria and application instructions.

A variety of scholarships are available for area students, based on need and area of study.

Technical assistance is available through AwardSpring, the company that developed and hosts the scholarship application process.

If you have non-technical questions regarding a scholarship, please contact us at info@cfnem.org or call 989-354-6881.
