Foundation Scholarship Eligibility


  • Online applications are strongly preferred. Complete the ECC Foundation Scholarship online.
  • You may apply for both an ECC Foundation Scholarship and District 509 Board of Trustees Scholarships.
  • Applications are screened for a potential match to every available foundation scholarship, and you may receive more than one.
  • Each student who completes the application process will be notified of the results via the email address provided on the application.

Eligibility Requirements

  • Scholarship applications are not complete until you have submitted all required documents, including one letter of support. A letter of support can come from a current or former teacher, work and/or volunteer supervisors, coaches, faith leaders, counselors, or mentors are all great resources for letters of support.
  • Home-schooled students submit ACT® scores for evaluation.
  • The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form is required for some, but not all, ECC Foundation scholarships.
  • Additional requirements depend on the structure of the scholarship.
