About the Online Scholarship Process

The majority of our 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:

  • Online portion (including two essays)
  • Scholarship Recommendation Form
  • Transcript.
  • There are ten scholarships which, in addition to these items, also have other requirements.

Additional Scholarships

In addition to the scholarships that use the online Scholarship Application, AAACF also has seven scholarships that require 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.
