The CASD Foundation has awarded more than a million dollars in scholarships to CASD students since our inception. The 2019 application process will be conducted entirely online using the Common Application below that saves applicants a great deal of time and duplication of effort. Once students complete the Common Application, all information will populate to other applications, as needed. There are two categories of CASD Foundation scholarships, but only one requires completion of an application. New scholarships are added regularly so check back often! Donors, if you are still interested in providing a scholarship this year, it is not too late. Please contact us at 717-709-4091 to discuss how we can establish an award to honor or remember your loved one, highlight a specific career or interest, or acknowledge student academic achievement!
The application window for our 2019 scholarship process is now open! Please begin with the Common Application. Keep in mind that you will need the following things to participate in our process:
- Formal acceptance at an institution of advanced training or higher learning
- Student Aid Report (SAR) which will you receive following completion of your FAFSA
- A resume
Many new scholarships will be added to the list below as details are confirmed. Please check back often and remember that the deadline for all submissions is March 31st, 2019 (unless otherwise stated.)
Simply click a link below to be directed to the application for a specific scholarship. Once you have completed the Common Application (above), your information will move with you through the process so there is no need to re-enter duplicate information or request multiple transcripts.
