Applying for Scholarships at the Tipton County Foundation
Use the "Create New Account" button to create a username and password.
Login and select the Tipton County Foundation Scholarships Application.
This covers all of the named scholarships in your Blue Book except
the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship.
Follow the prompts and instructions to complete each section of the application.
You will see bar graphs which indicate your progress. You may save and exit
at any time and return later.
Once you have reached 100% for all sections of your Tipton County Foundation
application, you may review and submit, but this may only be done once for TCF
Scholarships and once for the LECS application. After you have submitted,
you will not be able to edit your application.
You are encouraged to also apply for the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship,
using the separate section of the same online application. You
do not need to complete the TCF application before submitting
the LECS, and applying for one does not automatically apply you for the other.
The deadline for the LECS is January 15. The deadline for all other TCF
Scholarships is March 15, 2017.
