Scholarship & Financial Aid Information

Check often for updates!

Your best advice any time about scholarships and other financial aid for higher education is available at your high school Guidance Office and from the institutions to which you apply.
TCF’s promotion of higher education is funded in part by the Independent Colleges of Indiana through the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship Program.  We would like to thank ICI and the Endowment along with our other donors, volunteers, high school Guidance Offices, and the local Dollars for Scholars® chapters who all provide opportunities for Tipton County students to continue their education on a collegiate level.

TCF is committed to helping more students graduate from college with less debt. Rising costs are closing doors to higher education for many individuals in our community. Through the Tipton County Foundation, local Dollars for Scholars chapters at Tipton and Tri-Central high schools, and other organizations, we make a strong, collective statement about the importance of education beyond high school. We help provide both encouragement and financial support for local students.

The selection process is objective and nondiscriminatory. By completing a common application form, students become eligible for several local awards. Applications are scored anonymously by trained volunteers serving on a selection committee. Evaluation includes a variety of qualities, including work experience, school and community service activities, and academic record. In this way, scholarships are made available to a wide range of deserving students planning to attend an accredited post-secondary institution.

For over 50 years, Dollars for Scholars has been helping students in communities across America pursue postsecondary education. Tipton County has one chapter for each school district and over $100,000 in local scholarships is given to Tipton County high school seniors every year.

Scholarships funded by TCF are distributed through local Dollars for Scholars chapters in order to maximize the benefit to each recipient.

At each school, there is a collaborative application that covers most local scholarships. Those not included in the applications are available separately in the high school guidance offices.

Applications must be submitted electronically on or before March 28, 2014.

Financial Need

The online applications include some confidential financial information. If you wish to be considered for any scholarships that consider financial need, you must answer these questions.

Your family's responses will NOT be seen by anyone other than the person who completes it and the person who reviews it at National Dollars for Scholars. In other words, no one on the local Dollars for Scholars committee, the school staff, or the Tipton County Foundation will see your confidential financial information. If need is a factor in a particular scholarship, and you do not complete the financial information, you must be excluded from consideration for those scholarships.

The Dollars for Scholars applications are used only for Tipton County Dollars for Scholars and related decisions. Financial Aid from the federal government, your college or university, and some other donors depends on you completing the "FAFSA" (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) between January 1 and March 10. Visit http://www.fafsa.ed.gov for information.

Scholarship Renewal

Some scholarships, initially awarded to high school seniors, can be renewed for up to four years, under certain conditions.
