Middletown Community Foundation Scholarships for  College Upperclassmen:

We have a small pool of scholarship funds which are dedicated to College Upperclassmen. To be eligible, you must currently be going into your college sophomore, junior or senior year, and you must be 24 years of age or younger. You also must not currently be receiving any renewable scholarship through the Middletown Community Foundation. Upperclassman may apply 2 times per year, the deadlines for these applications are July 1 for the fall semester and December 1 for the spring semester.  These scholarships are one-time scholarships, meaning they do not automatically renew. All application information must be completely turned in by the appropriate due date before 11:59 PM. Until that time, you may make changes and additions to your application. By logging in, you can track your application to see what you have completed and what you still may need to complete before the deadline. Make sure that you use an email account that you actively and regularly check. This is the way you will be contacted by staff regarding missing items, awards and follow-up information. You will be required to answer essay questions. We suggest that you write the essays in a word processing program so that you can have them reviewed and edited, then cut and paste them into your online application in the appropriate space.

To complete the online application for Middletown Community Foundation Scholarships, you will need to assemble:

·         A PDF or Word Document showing your most recent grades and cumulative GPA.

·         A list of the courses you have completed toward your major and the grades you received.
