For Students

WFACF Scholarship application opens January 1st and deadline is March 1st.

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.   We do have some scholarship opportunities that have a different timeline as noted on the individual scholarship opportunity list. 

You will need to sign-up and complete the General Application.  Based on your answers to the questions our system will automatically match you to any scholarship opportunities which you are qualified for and there is no further action that needs to be taken.  Once you have completed the general 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.
