How to apply for NGCF Scholarships:
Applying for our scholarships is easy! Once a student has registered on the scholarship portal, they will access and complete all applications online. Most of the scholarships are accessible after completing the ‘Common Scholarship Application,’ which matches you with the scholarships you are eligible for. You can apply for as many scholarships for which you meet the eligibility criteria. A few other scholarships are available individually and students can test their eligibility to see if they are applicable to them.

Completing the Common Scholarship Application

Before starting any application, you must register on our scholarship portal. Most of our scholarships use the same common application. To access most scholarship applications, you must first complete the ‘common scholarship application’. Your answers to these questions will pair you with the scholarships you are eligible for. These scholarship(s) you are eligible for will appear in your portal after the common scholarship application is submitted. Then, you will need to complete and submit separate ‘addendums’ for the scholarship(s) you are applying for.

  • You may apply for as many scholarships for which you meet the eligibility criteria
  • Each scholarship fund has additional required questions or attachments. You must complete and submit the addendum page for each scholarship for which you apply
  • Applications may be completed in a single sitting or saved as a draft and finished later by selecting ‘My Saved Applications’
  • Save your draft applications regularly as you work!
  • You may be required to upload documents to your application or addendum. Please upload PDFs of any required attachment
  • Applications are not ready to submit until all required questions/fields have been completed and all required attachments have been uploaded.

Additional Scholarship Applications

While most of our scholarship opportunities can be accessed using the common scholarship application, we do have a handful of scholarships that have their own, separate application. To have the opportunity to apply for those scholarships, students will still need to register in our online scholarship portal. Then, they will see the common scholarship application along with individual applications. Please read about these scholarships and check your eligibility to see if you would be a proper candidate for them. The scholarship opportunities this will apply to are:

  • Judge Richard S. (Stan) Gault Education Scholarship
  • Lambert Lacrosse Scholarship
  • Mary Joan Kenney Scholarship
  • Rushton Educational Scholarship
