Placer Community Foundation invites local high school seniors and current college students to apply for scholarship awards for the 2020-2021 year. The Community Foundation utilizes an online system, Smarter Select, for most of the applications. Eligibility criteria vary for each scholarship and may include financial need, merit, geographic area, or field of study. Students may read requirements and access application links here. Deadlines are in February or March for all programs. Please note late or incomplete applications will not be considered.
