How to Apply

WFACF General Scholarship application opens December 1st.  The deadline is February 1st.

There are numerous scholarships available through the Wichita Falls Area Community Foundation scholarship program, each with its own set of criteria and requirements.  Good news! There is only one application to be completed to be considered for all of our scholarships!

Create a login, then complete the Universal Application. Based on your answers the system will automatically submit your application to the opportunities for which you qualify.  In addition the system will provide a list of potential opportunities, for which you might qualify if you choose to answer a few additional required questions.  We encourage you to review the list of potential scholarship opportunities and complete the few additional questions if you meet the requirement qualifications.

All information will be kept confidential within our scholarship program.

All required items must be completed and applications submitted in order to be considered for scholarship awards. You may save your application and return to update as often as necessary until the deadline.  Once your application is submitted, you may view your application, however you will no longer be able to make updates to the application, even if submitted before the deadline.  You must submit your application prior to the deadline, which is midnight of the date indicated on the application. Any third parties supplying a reference or additional information for your application may continue to provide their information, even past the deadline, but your application must be submitted to be considered.
