Scholarship & Financial Aid Information
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

America pursue postsecondary education. Tipton County has one chapter for each

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