2019 CFOV Scholarship Applications Now Available Online
WHEELING — The Community Foundation for the Ohio Valley now has 2019 scholarship applications available online at cfov.org by clicking the scholarships tab.
The foundation administers more than 70 scholarship funds. Last year, CFOV scholarship funds provided $328,314 in scholarship awards to 153 students throughout the Ohio Valley. Scholarship recipients attend schools in the region and beyond, including University of California-Los Angeles, Case Western Reserve University and Indiana University.
Scholarships managed by CFOV represent memorials for loved ones, an affinity for a particular major, attendance at a particular school or university, intended career path, financial need and even being a first-generation college student.
While each application has specific instructions, the application period closes March 1 for most opportunities. Application review will then take place and recipients will be informed of awards in May.
“Scholarships make a difference for local students as they prepare to take the next step in their educational journey. Through the generosity of donors, we are able to provide a diverse and meaningful assortment of scholarships to help finance an education,” said Susie Nelson, executive director of CFOV.
