The applications for the 2014 Scholarship Season will be available October 15, 2013. Nomination forms will be distributed to principals and educators at this time. The deadline for a school to nominate a student is December 20, 2013. Applications are due back to the Carson Scholars Fund by January 10, 2014. Please note that this includes the teacher recommendation and report card. Principals will have until January 17, 2014 to verify the student's application. Winners will be notifed in March 2014.
To request an application for the 2014 Scholarship Season, click here and complete the Application Request Form. Please note that only school officials (teachers, counselors, principals) can request an application. All requests received at this time will be added to our 2014 distribution list.
If you fall into one of the following categories, please note that you do not need to request an application – you are already on our distribution list:
- Any school that has previously received an application
- Any school in Maryland, Delaware, or Washington, DC
- Any school in the Pittsburgh Public School District, Atlanta Public School District, Indianapolis Public School District, or Battle Creek (Michigan) Public School District
If you have any other questions, please contact our Scholarship Director, Katie Damaroda, at email@example.com.
In 2014, we are hoping to start to move away from paper applications for previous scholars. This means we will heavily rely on email addresses. To make sure we have your updated email address, please email Katie. If you have multiple email addresses, we are happy to add all of them to our database - just let us know!
Payout forms for the spring 2014 semester will be mailed to all eligible Carson Scholars in October. Again, this semester we will offer an online payout request form. Scholars will recieve an email with instructions for completing their payout request online in the beginning of October.
Payout forms will be due back to the CSF office by November 21, 2013. Checks will be mailed to colleges on December 5, 2013 in time for the spring semester. Any Payout Request Forms received between now and then will be held until December. Any Payout Request Forms received after November 21, 2013 will be held for payout in the fall 2014 semester.
Please note that payouts can only be made after verifying that the scholar is a full-time accepted and enrolled student at an accredited institution within the United States for the upcoming semester. Students must be enrolled in a bachelor's-degree-track (four-year) program.
If any of your contact information (mailing address, email address, or phone number) has changed since we last heard from you, please get in touch! We can only mail Payout Request Forms to addresses we have. To update your information, call 410.828.1005 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
