Apply for a Scholarship
We proudly offer scholarship opportunities for students.
We are honored to be the steward of over seventy scholarship funds established by philanthropically-minded individuals in our community. Generous donors entrust us to connect them to dynamic students to provide financial resources for their education through scholarships. Our donors establish scholarship funds with criteria they wish to be met by applicants. Our scholarship committee considers the criteria, evaluates the submitted applications, and chooses the best candidates for each scholarship. For a full list of available scholarships, click here .
Starting in 2023, applications for the James F. Swift Scholarship will be completed through the Scranton Area Community Foundation’s Universal Scholarship application. Learn more about the James F. Swift Scholarship here
Students interested in one or more of our scholarships, including the James F. Swift scholarship, can create an account through our online portal to complete an eligibility questionnaire. After completing the eligibility questionnaire, the student will be directed to the scholarship application(s) they qualify for.
To learn more about scholarship opportunities, students may want to reach out to their school’s guidance or financial aid department. If you still have questions, please contact us!
