Apply for a City of Canton Scholarship


Interested in applying for a City of Canton Scholarship?  Follow these three simple steps:

Step 1:  Submit an Application
All students must submit an application and one-page essay to the Civil Service Office in order to be considered for the program.  Your essay must be no more than one page in length and should emphasize your personal contributions to the City of Canton during the time you have lived here.  These contributions may include, but are not limited to:  community service projects, school activities, neighborhood organization involvement, church activities, or other volunteer projects.

After review, successful applicants will receive a Letter of Recommendation from the City of Canton.  This letter must be submitted with your school’s specific application in order to be considered for a City of Canton Scholarship.

Upon receiving the City's recommendation, you must then apply for the scholarship directly with your school of choice.  It is important to note that each individual school has additional criteria that applicants must meet before being awarded a scholarship.

Note:  You must also be accepted at your school of choice to be considered for a scholarship.

 

Step 3:  Maintain eligibility
If awarded a City of Canton Scholarship, recipients must continue to meet scholarship requirements as established by the program and the participating university.  Students will be notified of all requirements upon being awarded a City of Canton scholarship.
