application is used to apply for a variety of scholarships
with the exception of just a few school-specific scholarships. For more
information regarding these scholarships, please see your school
counselor or call the Foundation. To complete
the application you will need to have available your cumulative high school (or college if
applicable) transcript reflecting a cumulative GPA, a copy of the Student Aid Report (SAR) only providing

Don’t Need to be the “Perfect” Student:
Every scholarship has different required qualifications and the
evaluation criterion varies. GPA is considered for many of the
scholarships but not all of them.
Need” Isn’t a Factor for All Students:
Not all of
the scholarships consider financial need.
All Scholarships are for a 4 Year College:
The Gratiot County Community Foundation offers a variety of
scholarship opportunities ranging from nontraditional, vocational,
undergraduate, and graduate students, as well as high school senior, athletic,
and artistic scholarships.
Evaluation Process is Extremely Fair:
volunteers of all ages, backgrounds, and locations review all student
applications. Decisions are judiciously based upon the verified
qualifications presented in the applicant’s application and
whether or not they meet the requirements of the scholarship
