Am I eligible?
The first step in applying for a scholarship is determining if you reside within the boundaries of the EOF. Take a moment and review the map below to locate your residence. The map can be zoomed in or you can click on, “View Larger Map” in the lower left corner of the map for more details. This map is an approximation of the EOF boundary. For an exact physical description, please download the Scholarship Application.
Once you have determined you reside within the EOF boundary, you will need to download and complete the Scholarship Application. Click the link below to download the application.
Please note that this year we have two applications: one for those who will be attending a 4-year college or university (Academic Application) and one for those who will be attending a trade, vocational or technical school (Vocational Application). We have done this to better serve the widely varying requirements for the many educational goals of our Black Forest Students.
If the student is interested in furthering academic pursuits (engineering, teaching, medicine, law, science, language, etc) then the Academic application is for him/her. If the student is interested in the technical arts or vocational sciences (computer designer, beauty/cosmetic practitioner, culinary artist , electrician, auto body or auto mechanic, etc), then the Vocational Application is the best choice.
Both applications have many parts in common, but each is tailored to the needs, interests and expertise of the student applicant.
We hope these choices will encourage more students to apply. The EOF has always supported educational opportunity for Black Forest students, no matter what their educational dream!
On behalf of the Board of Directors, we want to thank you and wish you the best of luck.
