Greater Toledo Community Foundation (GTCF) understands that being a student presents many financial challenges. With the help of Toledo’s philanthropic community, we have been able to establish more than 200 scholarship funds in an effort to decrease some of the barriers for graduating high school seniors and current college students in northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan in their pursuit to a post-secondary education. The majority of GTCF scholarship opportunities are academic and financial need-based, and they are available for students pursuing specific fields of study, students residing in specific geographical areas, and students attending certain colleges. Thank you to our generous donors for allowing GTCF to grant over $1.1 million in scholarship awards to students this past year.
GTCF manages the competitive process of more than 60 scholarship opportunities which includes everything from the creation of applications to making the scholarship payments. Applications are accepted through an online system – accessible by clicking the “Scholarship Portal” link below. Many of the opportunities are managed through a universal/general application that allows students to provide basic information in a single application. The universal/general application then matches students to up to 40 scholarships for which they are eligible to submit a proposal for review. It is important to note that the universal/general application does not constitute a final submission. Applicants must still provide any additional information required and submit each application separately. All scholarship opportunities included on the universal application have a deadline of February 11. Other scholarships are listed separately in the online system.
