Scholarships, Grants, and Loans
The College Foundation provides qualified North Central State College students with academic, financial need, and general scholarships from 42 endowed and special funds, including emergency funding and loans for college-related expenses. There are scholarships available for new and current students as well as full-time and part-time students. For the 2012-2013 academic year, the College Foundation has awarded more than 130 scholarships and also is providing emergency loans and grants to students in financial need for books, fees, nursing uniforms, and other critical costs of College.
A standard application for all College Foundation scholarships is available on this website (see link on this page), or in the College Foundation office in Kee Hall and Financial Aid office in Kee Hall on the Mansfield Campus. The College Foundation uses a general application form that covers all scholarships, a College and community scholarship committee reviews students’ submitted applications, and scholarship winners are selected and announced by June of each year. Completed applications with a copy of the most recent transcript of grades should be submitted to the College Foundation office in Kee Hall.
Note: the scholarship application requires the free Acrobat Reader software to view and print.

Establishing a Scholarship Fund with the College Foundation
The College Foundation encourages the establishment of endowed scholarships, as they are lasting tributes to individuals, organizations, communities, and companies, and provide an opportunity to provide perpetual support for students of North Central State College.
When an endowment scholarship fund is established, the gift is invested in perpetuity, and only the income (generally, interest earnings) from the fund’s principal is available for distribution annually. Endowments may be established with a minimum gift of $10,000, though the greater the investment, the more scholarships that can be awarded. Endowed funds for scholarships, loans, and grants are listed on this web page. They also include endowments for emergency, financial support to students. Not listed is the Gimbel Health Chair endowment fund, which supports healthcare faculty professional development and healthcare student tutoring. The Gimbel Health Chair endowment is not a student scholarship or loan fund.
Annual scholarships are established as a short term gift, often renewable. When a donor establishes an annual scholarship, the entire gift is awarded to a student or students during the current or next academic year. The annual scholarship minimum is $500.
To establish a scholarship fund to benefit North Central State College students, please call the College Foundation’s executive director at 419-755-4753.
