For Students

WFACF Scholarship application opens January 1st.


*****NOTE:  Deadline is extended to March 7th! *****


Due to recent weather and electricity issues, we are extending the scholarship deadline to March 7th.

There are numerous scholarships available through the Wichita Falls Area Community Foundation scholarship program, each with its own set of criteria and requirements.

Access the Wichita Falls Area Community Foundation online scholarship portal here.  

The deadline for the majority of our scholarship opportunities is March 1st. Due to recent weather issues we have extended the deadline for 2021 to March 7th.   We do have some scholarship opportunities that have a different timeline as noted on the individual scholarship opportunity list. 

This is a two part application process. You will need to sign-up and complete the General Application, and based on your current academic status the system will provide you with an additional application to complete for your High School or College information.  The system will match you to scholarships based on your qualifications. Once you have completed and submitted those applications the system might also provide a list of other Recommended Scholarship opportunities which you might possibly qualify for.  We encourage you to review those opportunities and complete the individual Apply-To applications if you meet the requirement qualifications. All information will be kept confidential within our scholarship program.

All required items must be completed in order to submit an application. You may save your application and return to update as often as necessary.  Once your application is submitted, you may access and make updates to the application until the application deadline date.

Please Note: Internet Explorer is not fully compatible with this software. In order to better utilize the system choose a different browser such as Chrome, or Firefox, etc.  If you do not have access to a computer to complete the application please see your high school career counselor for assistance, or contact our office.
