Scholarship Resources & How to Apply

Thanks to the generosity of our donors who care deeply about the future of Washtenaw County youth, AAACF awarded over $250,000 in 2017 across 40+ scholarship funds to help students continue their post-secondary educations at schools throughout the nation.

The Morse B. Barker Memorial Scholarship is open from July 10 - August 20.

All other scholarship applications will be available in January 2019.

About the Online Scholarship Process

The majority of these scholarships use the online Scholarship Application which allows students to submit a single application for all of the scholarships for which they are eligible. The online Scholarship Application consists of the online portion (including two essays), the Scholarship Recommendation Form, and the transcript. There are ten scholarships which, in addition to these items, also have other requirements.

Additional Scholarships

In addition to the scholarships which use the online Scholarship Application, AAACF also has seven scholarships which use a paper application. Deadlines for these scholarships vary and can be found here with applications & instructions.

Finally, AAACF has four scholarships that do not have an application form. These scholarships are awarded based on nominations, performance, and/or voting.

Your investments have positively impacted my life by granting me with the opportunity to transform my dreams into a reality.
