Frequently Asked Questions about Scholarships
How do I determine if I am eligible to apply for a scholarship?
Check our listing of scholarship criteria, available on this website and included on the online applications. Every scholarship administered by Heritage Fund is listed. Due to fluctuating market conditions, not all scholarships are available annually. Criteria may include certain academic requirements, specific majors, financial need, attendance at specific colleges and/or participation in a particular sport or extracurricular activity. In addition to the majority of our scholarships that use the Combined Scholarship application form, a few other scholarships use their own applications.
How do I apply for scholarships administered by Heritage Fund?
To apply for the scholarships administered by Heritage Fund, you will need to complete an online application. If you require assistance or computer access, contact Scholarship Manager Amy Laker at 812-376-7772 or email@example.com.
What steps do I take to complete the application?
Applicants must link to the application site (see APPLY under Scholarships tab) from the Heritage Fund website to create a user account and log in to access our scholarship applications. After clicking "Apply", begin the application form and follow the instructions to ensure that all sections are completed (percentage completed will be indicated) in order to submit an application. Applicants may save their applications and return at a later time.
After I have submitted my application(s), what happens?
You will be informed by email that your application has been received. We recommend checking your spam folder in case messages are delivered there. Recipients will be notified by mid-April.
How are scholarship recipients determined?
Each scholarship application is thoughtfully and carefully reviewed by a selection committee of Heritage Fund Board members and community volunteers.
What documents are required for my scholarship payment to be made?
Scholarship recipients will receive a Scholarship Acceptance Agreement that will outline the conditions of the award. Students must sign and return the form, along with other required materials. If the scholarship is to be paid in two or more semester installments, grades from the most recent semester are required before the next payment is sent. It is the student's responsibility to submit all required paperwork for payment. Heritage Fund will not send reminders. Failure to claim payments could result in cancellation of the scholarship.
