Application Instructions 

The NFC Foundation Scholarship application cannot save your progress. Before beginning a Fall, Spring, or Summer scholarship application, please collect the following items that may be required for upload at the end of the application:

  • Cover letter: One cover letter is required. The letter should explain why you are a good candidate and how you would benefit from receiving a scholarship. The letter cannot be more than one year old. Examples: https://m.wikihow.com/Write-a-Cover-Letter

  • Letters of recommendation: Two letters of recommendation are required. The letters may be written by anyone other than immediate family members. The letters cannot be more than one year old.

  • Transcript: A transcript may be required. If you are a new student at NFC or have not been enrolled at NFC for more than two semesters, you must upload a copy of your most current transcript from any other school you have attended. The transcript must show at least a one-year period of attendance and is used to verify a minimum 2.0 GPA and graduation or GED certification date. If you have already submitted the required transcript to NFC Admissions, you may instead upload a document stating that the NFC Foundation has permissions to request your transcript from NFC Admissions.

  • Essay: An essay is not required. If you would like to be considered for a scholarship that requires an essay, please click on the list of Scholarships Requiring Essays to review the criteria. There is an optional upload field at the end of the scholarship application where you may submit up to 3 essays.
