Our Opportunities

Welcome to the Lincoln Community Foundation Scholarship Opportunities Homepage.

Below you will find a listing of scholarships available to students along with brief information about each scholarship and its criteria. This allows you to research those opportunities for which you may be eligible. If this is your first visit to this page, click “Sign Up” to begin the form. After you provide your e-mail address as your username and create a password, you submit. You will receive a confirmation e-mail with a link and then you may begin your application form, save it and come back to it at any time to edit/update until the deadline. There is a very short General Application for your name and then the actual Scholarship application. Each time you return to the site you will click “Sign In”.

Based on information provided in the application form, when students complete and submit the scholarship application form, they are automatically applied to Scholarships for which they are fully eligible. These are “Auto-Match” scholarships, so you will not be applying directly to these opportunities, nor will you see their specific folders on the “My Applications” tab of your account. The General and Scholarship folders will be seen there. A transcript and first page of the FAFSA report with your EFC (Expected Family Contribution) are required for all applications.

There are Scholarships which require additional information beyond the transcript and FAFSA first page. These are not “Auto – Match”. They are labeled “Apply-To” Opportunities, and can be seen on the account’s “Recommended Opportunities” Tab after the application form is submitted. Please read the information and criteria carefully to determine if you are eligible for these “Apply – To” Scholarships. “Recommended” does not mean that you are necessarily eligible. To apply for these opportunities, students must click on the “Apply” button beside the specific scholarship to finish and submit. These opportunities may require references, answers to additional questions, special essays or other documentation. When you click on the “Apply” button of an opportunity you will see additional fields to answer questions, upload documents and fill in the names and addresses of your references. References will automatically receive a link to write a letter of reference directly within the system. Folders for “Apply-To” opportunities will appear on the student’s “My Applications” tab.
