Scholarship Applications Open at Southeastern Illinois Community Foundation

At Southeastern Illinois Community Foundation, we have more than $250,000 available in scholarships for students in our region. That’s a lot of money to get excited about.

But wait…there’s more!

We’ve simplified our scholarship application process! In the past, applicants answered the same questions on multiple application forms. It was redundant and took a lot of time. It wasn’t ideal for students, so we changed our process. We’ve developed a common application that will collect all of your personal, academic and financial information once and match you with the scholarships you are eligible for. All you have left to do is complete a few questions specific to those scholarships and submit each one.

You can access our applications online at: All applications (and references) must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, February 14. We require a completed FAFSA (make sure to use application, academic information, high school transcripts, ACT or SAT scores, and family financial information to complete our scholarship applications.

If you have questions, contact our office at 217.342.4988 or email Audra Clodfelter, Communication/Scholarship Administrator, at You can also message us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
