The deadline for the 2019 Future Generations Scholarship application is Friday, June 7, 2019, at 3 p.m.
Current year Rising Sun High School Seniors applying for this scholarship should submit all of their required Community Appreciation Service Hour Reporting forms to the Foundation by Friday, May 31, so that the forms can be reviewed for eligibility and correct signatures.
This early submission of hours will allow time for corrections if needed, before the application deadline.  
OCCF is not responsible for students being ineligible due to lack of hours completed before the application deadline.
You will need to know the number of hours on file at the Foundation in order to complete the application.  
Seniors will also be required to upload their final high school transcript and college acceptance letter/proof of enrollment to the application.
Those applying for the scholarship for the first time, that are not current year Seniors will be required to submit an application with  a copy of their most recent transcript showing a cumulative GPA and a college acceptance letter/ proof of enrollment uploaded to it.  
You will need to contact the Foundation to obtain the number of community service hours that you completed before your high school graduation, if you do not have them on record.
Renewal applicants must submit their application with a copy of their transcript showing their cumulative GPA for the Spring Semester uploaded.  
A new application must be submitted each year. Applicants may receive this scholarship up to five times.
The Future Generations Scholarship is available to 2006 and later Rising Sun High School graduates who are attending a four-year college and that meet the current year scholarship program requirements. A complete list of program requirements can be found on the website.  
Please read them to ensure full scholarship eligibility.  This year the scholarship amount is $2,000 and will be paid over two semesters at $1,000 a semester.
