RCCF Scholarships Now Available!

Scholarship applications for the 2017-2018 school year are now available at the Rush County Community Foundation [RCCF].  Applications, instructions and cover pages are available at the RCCF office, or online at www.rushcountyfoundation.org/scholarships.  Scholarships are available for Rush County residents intending to begin or continue coursework in post-secondary education within the 2017 calendar year.


In order to be considered for RCCF scholarships, students must submit a completed application packet, which includes:

  • One original and two copies of the 2017-2018 RCCF scholarship application
  • One original and two copies of the student’s current, official transcript
  • A signed cover page for each scholarship in which the student intends to apply
  • Any required documentation identified for the particular scholarship(s), as listed on the scholarship fund’s cover page.  This might include a letter of recommendation, explanation of program of study, etc.


In addition to submitting the application packet, students applying to RCCF scholarships must submit financial information to Indiana College Costs Estimator at www.indianacollegecosts.org.   Indiana College Cost Estimators is an online platform that provides college and financial aid information to prospective families.  Once again, Rush County students applying for local scholarships must utilize this web-based tool to enter household and financial information.  This program is a free service available to all Rush County families, thanks to a grant from Lilly Endowment, Inc., Independent Colleges of Indiana, and the Rush County Community Foundation.


Completed application packets for each scholarship to which the student applies may be submitted the Guidance Department of Rushville Consolidated High School, Knightstown High School or to the Rush County Community Foundation office.  Deadline for submitting financials to Indiana College Costs Estimator and the application packet for all local scholarship funds held at the Foundation is 4:00 PM, Wednesday, February 15, 2017.


Scholarship funds are made possible by the generosity of donors.  The Rush County Community Foundation holds 70 endowment funds that have awarded over $1 million in local scholarships to Rush County students.  For further details on the scholarship funds available, we encourage you to visit our office at 117 North Main Street or our website at www.rushcountyfoundation.org/scholarships.  In addition to a pdf-fillable application and printable cover pages, our website offers access to the detailed instruction pages and FAQs, which we hope will make completing the application easier for all applicants.
