Special to 1812Blockhouse

The Richland County Foundation has opened its college scholarship application period. It did so on December 19, two weeks earlier than in previous years.

New applicants including high school seniors must have at least a 2.5-grade point average (GPA), and returning applicants must have at least a 2.0 GPA, attend an accredited school, and be a resident of Richland County, or a graduate of a Richland County high school.

The deadline for college scholarship applications is April 1.

The applications will be considered as they are received, and the award determinations will be made within eight weeks.

The scholarship will be sent directly to the school. These are not recurring scholarships so students must re-apply each year. College and CTE scholarships are based on financial need.
