By Staff | Jan 27, 2021

The Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa’s scholarship application period is now open and students may apply for scholarships available through CFNEIA at www.cfneia.org/scholarships.

The deadline to apply for 2021 scholarships is Wednesday, March 10.

CFNEIA awarded nearly $588,770 in scholarships to high school, college, and adult students in 2020. A total of 272 scholarships were awarded to students pursuing higher education opportunities with an average award of $2,165.

Scholarship opportunities are available to students across CFNEIA’s 20-county region, which consists of 23 affiliate community foundations, including Palo Alto County.

Students interested in applying for 2021 scholarships should visit the website to view the scholarship eligibility checklist. Once it is determined a student is eligible for one or more scholarships, a common application, also available through the CFNEIA website, must be completed.

The common application requires basic student information, transcript of academic record, summary of extra-curricular experiences, an essay portion, and a letter of recommendation. Some scholarships will require additional information.
