SCHOLARSHIPS
 

Martin County Community Foundation
is pleased to announce it is accepting applications for two Non-Traditional Scholarships. 

There are many paths to higher education…
Many students choose to postpone college; many move directly into the workforce, bypassing a university education altogether; others put their college careers on hold, choosing the more difficult task of raising a family. It is only later that they decide to pursue a higher education, either to improve their personal and professional opportunities, or to expand their general knowledge. We are grateful for the donors in our community who have established non-traditional scholarships for returning students.  These scholarships give preference to helping a student begin or return to college, years after leaving high school.  

Martin County Non-Traditional Scholarship is for non-traditional students who meet the following criteria: 

  • Must be a resident of Martin County
  • Must have graduated or left high school at least one year prior to applying for the scholarship
  • Must seek to further their education at an accredited college, university, vocational or trade school
  • Must demonstrate a need for assistance

 Second Door Scholarship, is named after the saying “When one door closes, another one opens…” 
 This scholarship is for non-traditional students who meet the following criteria: 

  • Must be a resident of Martin County
  • Must have graduated or left high school at least two years prior to applying for the scholarship
  • Must demonstrate a financial need
  • The scholarship cannot be used for GED test fees
  • The scholarship cannot exceed the cost of course and course materials
  • Applicant must provide evidence of program acceptance
  • Program must be administered by a qualified institution/organization
